Students living in the Art of Wellness LLC participate in two academic courses and several cohort activities in both the arts and in wellness that help build a supportive, creative life, and nurture social connections in a diverse, inclusive community. Cultivating practices of well-being with fellow aspiring artists offers an enriching experience that can have positive lifelong effects toward building a sustainable and successful life as an artist. MISSION Our mission is to build wellness living learning communities that reinforce conscious, holistic and balanced living to targeted populations at UGA, beginning with students in the arts and creative practices, to both improve and integrate academic performance and wellbeing. By promoting wellness on campus we are contributing to a safe, successful, and positive student body.
