  • This hypermodal work draws upon the concept of third space as it serves to describe and explore La Ruche d'Art, a community art studio that also serves as a storefront university classroom. Hypermodality allowed for the creation of a third reflective research space (mirroring the role of La Ruche in the learning processes of participants).

  • 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.
