AbstractThe purpose of this creative research project is to discover whether employing artistic methods in the pursuit of deeply scientific knowledge is beneficial to the future learners, educators, physicians, researchers, and communicators. The “method” used to evaluate this proposed theory is to observe and present the progress of one undergraduate student through such an artistic journey. The student will use Type II Diabetes Mellitus as the focus of the project, and create several works of art to describe the disease process underlying this public health crisis that we are faced with today. The works of art will be of varying stylistic approaches, and involve mixed media to push artistic adventure to the limit. The collective results of this theory are to be determined by the observers, followers, and evaluators of the project; both in person at the College of Medicine and online on a Facebook page. The final physical results include a written format, a Facebook page, and ten mixed media pieces on canvas framed in black wood.
