Biography

Molly B. Ransone is the Assistant Director of Learning Media Innovation at Virginia Commonwealth University. She leads a creative team that creates educational media that helps faculty bring their subject matters to life. She also works with faculty to design multimedia student assignments that help students express their creativity while engaging with course content and research. She recently launched a new project at VCU called Artfulness, “attention to the present moment by means of artistic practices and sensory experiences.” Molly received a grant to create Artfulness as an online resource, and she used it to invite in over thirty collaborators at VCU to contribute to the curriculum that pairs mindfulness teachings with process based art activities. It is openly available to everyone at artfulness.vcu.edu. She is currently co-teaching Artfulness as a hybrid, cross-disciplinary arts class at VCUarts Depot for a small cohort of students that want to explore and develop an Artfulness practice.
