A Spectrum of Healing


Violet Hive Art is a community collective that mindfully provides art classes, studios, and therapeutic services. Our mission is to use art to support the people of Denver because we know art is inherently healing. Whether it is achieved through a studio or therapy, we are excited to help you take care of your entire being.

We describe our offerings as a Spectrum of Healing. You may engage in the form or level that is the best fit for you -- be it enrolling in a studio focused on accessible art skills, exploring energywork, designing a mobile programming track for your organization or engaging in individual or group therapy.  Let the journey commence. 



Art Therapy: Individual & Groups

Art therapy is an effective and alternative means of brain-body communication. We use psychological theory with visual arts to help clients express themselves nonverbally. It’s not about what you create -- it’s about the process you go through to create the art work and your experience with it. Let's get started.

Mobile Programming: Denver Public & Private Schools and Community Programming: Corporate and Nonprofit

We provide a memorable and engaging art experience that can be used for team building, self-care and enrichment opportunities for organizations. Our Community Impact Programming involves work with schools, libraries and other public organizations. Our Private Programming creates opportunities for corporate and nonprofit organizations to work with our staff and their team for growth.

On-site Art Studios and Programming for All Ages

We describe our art classes as studios involving “art as healing.” We believe that art is inherently healing and can take form indirectly while creating art and enjoying the finished product. Our intent is that you leave with important takeaways, inspiration and a new confidence around the art materials used.

"We were so grateful today to have Violet Hive Art come to GALS and share some of what they do with us (art for healing and self-care). We had a great time engaging in both art and conversation. The team is fun to be around and did an amazing job sharing some of the ways they work with youth by connecting and helping to build their resiliency as well as our own. We had fun and left feeling restored. Thank you!"

–Amber Brydon, School Psychologist
