Take A Class

We at the Be Creative Studio want to bring the fun. That’s why we choose painting subjects that are on-trend, off-the-wall, and always buzz-worthy.   Check out some of our favorite work, or dare we say…masterpieces.

The Hive Vibe

That's the sweet stuff.  Yoga, meditation, art, painting, learning and creativity all wrapped up in one hive.  We work together to polinate our community with the gifts we find inside of each other.  The Vibe Hive is a place where we are most free, we invite you to join us and make some honey of your own.

Vision Statement

A honey bee colony is a social organism that thrives as a group. And we think that is awesome! Just like a strong beehive we have gathered a group of people to help further the mission of Be Creative Studios. Together we call ourselves The Colony, Curtis is the Queen Bee, instructors and volunteers are the worker bees and the sweet stuff that you get to take home is the honey.
