Education

EYEYAH! is used as a child-led learning resource to spark discussion on important issues and connect students 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.

For each issue released, 40 professional image makers create visual metaphors and detailed illustrations that include activities such as mazes, spot-the-difference, and caption contests weaved into the experience.

Each issue is also accompanied with a corresponding Teacher’s Toolkit that employs a ‘See. Think. Wonder’ approach to cultivate visual literacy and student-led learning.

With EYEYAH! kids will develop creativity and a deeper understanding of important social issues that affect them, 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.

“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.

"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
