studio set-ups

I know I'm not alone looking back over the year. I have oodles of images of children's ART from beehive classes, workshops and programs. And yes, the ART was incredible.  I had nothing to do with that except present the materials + methods + maybe some good tunes. It's always about the kids and the energy created for and by them. 

One thing I love to do is document the studio set-ups. The time before the paint flys and the energy is through the roof. It's a little nerve wracking but in a good follow your gut way with a variety of great materials, spectrum of colors and fun.  It's like setting up for a party and your best friends are coming.  It needs to be inviting and oozing with special excitement. 

It can be simple. Simple as markers + stickers on small papers, colored pencils or watercolors on strips of white fabric.  
It can be more involved. Like bookmaking, sewing or sculpture. 
What ever it is you've got up your sleeve, pay attention to make great.  So great that those small hands with big minds cannot resist the temptation to dive in and get lost. 

It all matters.

beehive ARTbox


MINI MOUSE HOUSE - create a world of miniatures 
ART CLOCK - design your own clock
BUILD - construct a wood sculpture, structure, building, landscape 
CREATE -  mixed media collage on frames, cards+tags, mini masterpieces

Wow-za! We are so excited about the great ARTbox response we've had!  We've been shipping  ARTboxes all over the country and beyond. 
A smile comes to my face when I think about all of the children who have received 
ARTboxes this  holiday season!  I love sending them out, spreading a piece of
beehive ART to those who cannot visit the studio. No two ARTboxes are the same, every box has a little BEEHIVE surprise. Each ARTbox is prepped and packed at the beehive studio. 

We've got more up our sleeves..   get your ART!

fish prints

   summer ART 2015 fish prints

I love how the kids used the sponges to create coral, water and seaweed.
We used only gold and/or silver paint for the fish.
