Education

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 students can also benefit.

The specially curated content fuses art education, creative thinking and social issues. We release 3 new issues annually, accompanied by a teachers toolkit that includes artwork insights, backgrounds into artists, art styles and is supported by group and individual exercises.

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.”
