Join us Friday October 26th for our last painting session our studio, “Trick or Treat – Paint a Seat”. Take home a piece of Hive history by painting one of our wooden studio chairs. $20 includes the chair, all painting supplies, live background music by the Brazillionaires from above us at the CAC, as well as getting to see the parade of costumed party-goers on their way to the CAC’s annual Halloween party. Tasty treats included, also.  Register here: http://thehive3o5.com/event/trick-or-treat-paint-a-seat/

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.
