“An Art Hive is a community art studio that welcomes everyone as an artist”.
The Midcoast Art Hive is part of the International Art Hive Network of community art studios. An Art Hive welcomes everyone as an artist and believes art making is a human behavior. Art Hives celebrate the strengths and creative capacities of individuals and communities and foster self-directed creativity and learning. During the Art Hive, anyone is welcome to come and create. There will be supplies available to use and participants are also welcome to bring their own supplies to use and share. This is not an art-making class. Individuals will be encouraged to create what they want. However, participants will also be encouraged to share their knowledge with one another in an egalitarian manner. A facilitator will be present to help guide participants as needed but not to instruct.
The Midcoast Art Hive is free and open to the public the last Sunday of each month, February-June* from 1-4 pm. The Art Hive is appropriate for all ages. Supervised children are welcome with their parents but please do not leave your children unattended. As a free community art studio, we welcome donations of art materials.

*Note that the May Art Hive will be held the Sunday before Memorial Day Weekend, May 20th.
