Description

Beehive Studio is a vibrant, nurturing place for children (and families) to make art, explore ideas, and be creative. At Beehive we believe that all children are artists, and that this innate creativity can be nurtured by playing and learning with beautiful quality materials, accompanied by passionate and experienced teachers in a thoughtful and inspiring space. 

At Beehive there are no worksheets or cookie-cutter projects. While children will bring home beautiful (and sometimes prolific!) art works during participation in our programs, our focus is firmly on process – learning skills that provide building blocks to explore their own vision, rather than ‘do as I do’. Mistakes, mess, and experiments are encouraged.

Beehive is an inclusive place. Children learn from each other, the instructors, themselves, and their environment, and we encourage exposure to diversity from all those sources. All children and families, however they come, are welcomed at our studio. Groups are small, and as such community is created. Unkindness limits creativity and is addressed immediately. If you feel your child needs additional support to participate please get in touch.

Our People

Kate Settle is the owner of Beehive Studio, and teaches many of the courses. Kate is professional photographer and a qualified teacher, with many years experience around the world and has worked on private freelance commissions, art photography, as well as editorial work for a variety of print publications. Kate’s prior experience in International Development and in Education have heavily influenced her artistic life, and lead to the creation of the CLIC Workshops children’s photography program (through which she has taught hands on photography skills to over 2,000 children in Ottawa area elementary schools), and now to Beehive Studio. Kate is a parent to two boys, loves print making, playing the recorder (really…) colour, paddling her kayak, and hunting for pebbles on the south coast of England where she grew up.

Working on our Beehive Art at Home packs for families who are signed up for our spring term.
There are still some spots left in our grade 1-3 classes if you’d like to join in! All on-line with a real life take home pack for the moment, back in the studio when we can 🙂
Procrastinating on making the videos!!! If you walk by the studio next week and see me through the window, talking to myself, you’ll know why! #outofmycomfortzone

Can you tell me more about this class? Thanks!

Way to go, Kate! This is such a great idea. The kids (and parents) are going to love this. Good luck with the videos.

Kate can you tell me more as well?
