Need a last minute holiday gift for the person who has everything? Give the gift of a no-fail fun experience sure to banish cabin fever (surely we will have snow by then). Join us Monday January 21st at 6 p.m. for some crazy fun pour painting. We will be using two techniques to create three pieces at the Suite Fire Bar & Grille at Holiday Inn & Suites at Grand Prairie. Your $35 registration fee includes all materials, instruction, a complimentary glass of wine, & an additional surprise. Grab a friend, your significant other, or come alone. Don’t miss out. Seating is limited due to space needed to create. Registration here:

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, located in the Contemporary Art Center building in Peoria, will be strictly a mobile studio after Oct. 26th. We will travel to the 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.
