  • On Monday, October 17, 2016 the LivingRoom Community Art Studio, an Art Hive in Oshawa, ON hosted Art Hives 101, a full-day workshop covering the founding principles and methods as well as the practical aspects (models and legal structures, financial, social and environmental sustainability) of starting an art hive in one's community or organization, offered by the Art Hives Network. This workshop is designed for people of all backgrounds interested in starting an Art Hive in their community and was facilitated by Rachel Chainey, Art Hives Network National Coordinator. 

  • Memorial University in St.John's, Newfoundland, welcomes Dr. Timm-Bottos on Saturday October 22nd, 2016 for a one-day experiential workshop, introducing the methods practiced in a community art studio, aka Art Hive, developed over a 22-year sustained research practice by Professor Timm-Bottos. She will present how the engagement in ongoing community creative arts can have a positive impact on the physical, mental and social wellbeing of participants, support the inclusion of marginalized populations and be a vehicle for dialogue and social innovation. 

  • Le Guide Pratique des Ruches d'Art a été créé en réponse a un besoin exprimé par plusieurs membres de la communauté qui partagent un désir de se regrouper pour répondre de façon créative aux enjeux auxquels fait face leur milieu de vie, et se demandent par où commencer. L’information que nous avons recueillie ici ne se veut pas un livre de recettes définitif, mais nous espérons qu’en rendant disponibles nos apprentissages jusqu’à ce jour, nous pourrons vous soutenir sur votre parcours vers la création d’une Ruche d’Art au sein de votre communauté.

  • The Art Hives How-to-Guide was created to address a need expressed by many community members who share a desire to regroup to respond creatively to issues in their communities, and are wondering “How do we begin?” The information we have gathered here is not a definitive recipe book, but we hope that by making what we’ve learned so far, readily available in an open source format, we can help make your Art Hive journey just a little bit easier. We want to support those of you who are inspired by the Art Hives model in making it your own.

  • The Making of Signs for La Ruche d’Art Pointe-St-Charles

    By Jessica Gardner

  • The model and practice of Art Hives have evolved through two decades of sustained practice research, continuous observation and adaptation, and experimentation with spaces and organizational structures led by Dr. Janis Timm-Bottos, who has developed and established six successful art hives in different locations across North America.

  • New York! The city of food, architecture, art, straight-talking people, non-stop walking, The High Line, jazz, Broadway, the five boroughs…And a city that takes its notions of community very seriously.

  • At our Art Hives Symposium in June, we were all asked if there was anything we would like to share from our experience of setting up small site of community engaged art making.

    I thought about what I could share after years of helping Janis start community studios (aka Art Hives) in various locations across the country. Every space requires a different set of parameters but how each space is set up has a major impact on what art is made there. For example, a carpeted space will not invite messy painting to occur or a dimly lit space will not welcome small scissor cutting.

  • To Combat Weak Social Ties, a New Way to Create

    An 'arts hive' with focus on therapy puts expression before instruction.
