AWL Calm Corner

A Waiting Room Space for Calm and Creative Exploration

In 2018, The Well created a special Calm Corner at the Schiff Wellness Center at the Academy of World Languages. This space was designed in partnership with ArtWorks, inspired by the Cincinnati Art Museum's Rosenthal Education Center, for children and families to stretch, breathe and create while waiting to see the doctor. The ArtWorks team interviewed families from different parts of the world who now live in Cincinnati about what things they do to help them feel happy and healthy to inspire the designs on both the front of the building and in our calm corner. 

This colorful puzzle was desiegned by a team of artists named Jessie and Katey.
