What's an Art Hive?

An Art Hive is a community art studio that welcomes everyone as an artist.

From an art pop-up in a local library to a community studio or gallery, at its heart, an Art Hive is about inclusion, respect and learning.

It's a welcoming place to talk, make art and build communities. Responding in creative ways to things that matter.
