Good Morning All,

am beyond thrilled to let you all know that as of October 1st I will be sharing a new studio space at the historic Alton Mill Arts Center. Studio 201- The Hive!!

Andrea and Dan created the hive 9 years ago and it has been celebrated as one of the most esteemed encaustic art studios in Ontario. An incredible community has been created within its walls.

My studio mate Kim Kool is an incredible artist and has been an encaustic instructor for many years. She is absolutely lovely with an amazing energy that I am so excited to create with.
The hive community that has developed over the years is something we both cherish. Our goal is to keep the essence of the hive the same and hope that it will evolve into a space of our own that everyone can enjoy.

We are really looking forward to taking over the hive to showcase our work and host some incredible workshops and events.
We will continue with a variety of workshops and open studios. We are also discussing many different opportunities for artists and instructors to use the hive to exhibit their own work and host their own classes.

Please see our Calendar for Hive hours and events here.  

Here’s to all the power and magic that we can create! 
See you in The Hive – Encaustic Studio #201
