Eyeyah! is being used as a child-led learning resource to spark off discussions about important issues and connect students with cutting-edge contemporary artists and graphic designers. We recommend Eyeyah for 8-12 years old, but younger and older children can also benefit.
The carefully curated content fuses art education, creative thinking and social emotions learning. We release 3 new issues annually and each publication is accompanied by a Teachers Toolkit. Using a 'See, Think, Wonder' approach, the toolkit includes artwork insights, backgrounds into artists, art styles, art terminology, discussion points and is supported by group and individual exercises.
For each publication released, 40 professional image makers create visual metaphors, detailed illustrations, visualisation of fun facts and complex ideas. Activities such as mazes, spot the difference, Where's Wally and caption contests are weaved into the experience. Skills developed include lateral & critical thinking, visual literacy, creativity and a deeper understanding about important issues such as the dangers of the internet, food and health and financial literacy.

Testimonials & Awards
“I have never ‘read’ visual illustrations the way I did with this book. Eyeyah (Issue 01) invites broad-based engagement for cyber wellness. The visuals invoke genuine feelings and reflections.”
Founder of Kingmaker - Asia's leading cyber wellness consultancy.
"I used Eyeyah in a series of child-led sessions where I showed an image to the children and they came up with a set of questions and discussion points that popped into their heads. It was a great conversation starter, sparking off group discussions, without teacher prompts."
Grade 1 Teacher, Elementary School, St Joseph's Institution International.
“While it sure is a sight to behold, there’s much more to this magazine than meets the eye.”
“Using creativity to draw children into conversation about social issues in modern society.”
