Art Hive is a creative community that draws upon the innately therapeutic nature of artmaking. Make time for yourself to recharge and get inspired! Art Hive invites you to experiment and play as you explore the artistic process. Part of Agnes’s Wellness Program, this weekly program is free and projects are designed to use materials you already have on hand. All levels of artistic experience are welcome.
This program is made possible through the generous support of the Birks Family Foundation.
