Hi! My name is Michelle, owner of Hive. With a background in Design & Arts Education, I am excited to showcase local talented craftspeople & offer an array of Arts Education workshops & classes to all ages!

I moved to Concord, NC from Buffalo, NY in 2011. I have a Masters Degree in Art Education and taught for 7 years in the public school system. Art has always been a passion of mine. I love teaching art, not only because it gives me sense of accomplishment, but also because it provides me with the opportunity to interact with people of all ages, listen to them, and to watch them learn. My husband Chad is also an artist. He has a Bachelors Degree in Ceramic Design. We live to Downtown Concord with our three doggies & kitty.
