Join us this Saturday (January 18th) for a fun creative night out.  From 6-8 p.m. you can be walked through the painting of the night or do you own thing.  Secure your seat/s with your credit card or PayPal Here: “Buy Now!” 

For those of you who haven’t heard yet, we are now located in the North Art Studios within the lovely St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 3601 N. North St. in Peoria. We are currently working on our schedule for the upcoming months.  If you are interested in a particular class, round up some friends and we will add one to the calendar.  We need a minimum of 6 to hold a class and at least 10 for a private event. Remember: all ages and all ability levels welcome at The Hive. Some classes are best suited for adults and same with kids. Accommodations can be made for participants with special needs. Just ask. 🙂 

Need a fun creative gift for a special adult or child in your life? Buy a gift card to put toward a class at The Hive. Call Jody for studio hours and with any questions. (309) 360-4880.

Reuse request: Please save your colored gift tissue paper for use in our mixed-media projects throughout the year as opposed to sending it to the landfills. Bring a bag in (We’ll take it wrinkled – no problem) and get a $5 coupon off a future class at The Hive. This offer will continue until further notice. We love reuse at our studio.

Planning a celebration for someone special? Make a memory that’s sure to last with a private pARTY with The Hive. We do custom projects (painting & more) with the theme of your choice. Great activities for adults and kids, creative business outings, school field trips, home schoolers and scout groups. Call Jody at (309) 360-4880 to schedule. 

A fun new year session for kids of all ages is “Kids Create” on Tuesday January 7th from 10-noon. We ask for quiet voices in the church halls, but regular kids’ volume is welcome and expected behind our closed studio door. A great one for kids & adults to take together is “Co-Create” on Sunday January 12th. Sign up for either or both on the links below

The Hive is your best bet for planning:

  • Homeschooling classes
