ART TO EDUCATE

EYEYAH! is used as a child-led learning resource to spark discussion on important issues and connect children with cutting-edge contemporary artists and graphic designers. We recommend EYEYAH! for children aged 8 to 12, but younger and older children can also benefit.

The carefully curated content fuses art education, creative thinking and social-emotional learning.

We use a thematic approach to tackle important topics like internet safety and healthy eating. Our approach is built around 4 content pillars: Observation, interactive, visual learning & challenges. Nurturing creative thinking, visual literacy and problem solving.

Each issue is also accompanied by a Teacher’s Toolkit that uses a ‘See. Think. Wonder’ approach to cultivate child-led learning.

    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.

    “I’m a big fan of Eyeyah. Besides loving all the illustrations which are amazing, it’s really a game changing approach to how kids see images. It develops a skillset they will need for the future to really challenge things and not just accept and learn by heart.”

    Jessica Meyer, Program Director Nike, and parent.

    "Eyeyah's innovative concept in engaging through arts and visual communication appeals not only to children but adults as well."

    Gladys Foo, Senior Manager, YWCA Singapore
