To show our appreciation to YOU, our small business supporters (and our host venues, by getting them repeat business), we are giving each attendee at our March & April public classes a $10 Hive class certificate to be used toward future Hive events at that venue. Certificates will be given out at each of the public events below:

“Pour Painting” – Tuesday March 26th at Mickie’s Pizzeria (East Peoria) from 6-8 “Buy Now!” 

“Pour Painting” – Wednesday April 10th at The Blacksmith (Washington) from 6-8 “Buy Now!” 

“Friendship Mandalas” – Tuesday April 23rd at Mickie’s Pizzeria (East Peoria) from 6-8 “Buy Now!”   

“Mother-Daughter Make & Take” – Sunday May 5th at “Sunnyland #1 Stop” (Sunnyland) from 2-4 “Buy Now!”

More public classes to be added to the calendar in the future.
Want to plan something creative to celebrate an upcoming special occasion?  Design your own private painting event – lots of creative activities to choose from. Book your birthday or bachelorette (and other celebratory painting pARTies) at the venue of your choice before your preferred dates fill up.  
The Hive Studio, previously located in the Contemporary Art Center building in Peoria, is now a mobile studio. We will travel to the central Illinois location your choice for your custom private event. We will also be offering public classes on occasion, so stay tuned to our website and Facebook page.
We offer a variety of art classes, team-building, girls’ night out painting, date night, bachelorette and birthday pARTies, as well as other activities, for all ages and abilities: children, teens, adults, seniors, and special needs. Earn scouting art badges, too! Minimum number of participants does apply and is dependent upon the activity selected. Like us on The Hive Facebook page and subscribe to our newsletter to be informed of upcoming events open to the public. Our FB page has the most up-to-date photos of Hive events and classes.
