One of the great drivers of the Art Hives Movement is a commitment to the creative reuse of resources. The artistic potential of recycled material was explored via a Recycled Art Workshop on Dec 6th in the Lobby of the Education Building. The workshop also marked the start of the MAHI’s recycling campaign for the coming year.
Special collection boxes have been placed at the 1st and 2nd floor entrances of the Faculty of Education, as well as at the entrance of the Art Hive itself in the Curriculum Resources Centre. The MAHI encourages the McGill community to embrace this spirit of creative reuse and generously donate to the cause in the form of art and craft supplies (new or gently used) and reusable materials such as wood, paper, fabric etc. Help us make this initiative as sustainable as possible

Make Some Art
The McGill Art Hive (MAHI) is a gathering place, a simple space for making art. Participation requires no art background or experience. It is a space where conversation, getting to know fellow artists, and creating community can accompany the process of making art. It affords members of the McGill community the opportunity to step out of their daily challenges, spend time in a very different place, and to return to their work feeling more relaxed and focused.
We at the Art Hive believe it is important to be mindful of the need to disconnect from stress, and to “reconnect” with others. MAHI aims to achieve this by utilising creative experiences to foster a sense of togetherness along with individual well-being.
