How can art increase your health and well-being? Art Fundamentals Professor Susan Beniston and Sheridan Library and Learning Services recently partnered together to explore how creative forms of making can contribute towards one’s wellness. On February 22, Sheridan’s first Art Hive offered the community a chance to experience the transformative power of shared creativity. Participants were invited to upcycle and re-cycle arts and crafts materials. Based on the idea of an open studio space, an Art Hive welcomes everyone as an artist, supporting them in the exploration of their creative capacity while aiming to build a stronger, more inclusive community through the process of art-making.
As the spring weather gradually graces Trafalgar campus, the Gallery Garden is now open for faculty and staff use. A few years ago, this interior courtyard in A wing was renovated as an amenity for members of the Sheridan community. Previously, the space has also hosted special initiative projects such as the Illustration Embarrassment workshop. Special thanks to Sue Hutton and Marcie Matsubuchi for maintaining the space over time. Be on the lookout as they add more flora over the next week. The Gallery Garden can be reserved in the Outlook booking system as Trafalgar – AGG – Gallery Garden.
