Visual Arts

  • Art Hive London welcomes everyone as an artist and community collaborator. We believe we are more than just consumers on this planet and that by creating together we build a sense of belonging! 
     

  • WHO WE ARE
    Art Forms is a youth arts organization designed to provide art-making opportunities to youth who are "on the fringe." We believe in the transformative power of the arts, particularly for marginalized groups. Our space on James Street North is perfectly poised to attract a wide variety of groups since we are located in the heart of Hamilton’s art district, which also houses a handful of youth services. Art Forms has one full-time staff, a steering committee who provides governance, and several community and program partners who contribute in different ways.

  • A research team led by neurologists Anne Bolwerk and Christian Maihofner reports “the production of visual art improves effective interaction” between certain regions of the brain.

    What’s more, this improvement in brain function—found in a small group of new retirees who took a class in which they created paintings and drawings—was matched by self-reports of strengthened psychological resilience.
