International symposium Perspectives on art education
presentation: Design Experience Workshop to sensitise youth to everyday environments




Design is not about products. It is about a discovery process and sensory experience to analyse and assess the quality of living environment. 'Experiencing design' begins with close observation of forms colours, patterns and structures in everyday life and their interrelationships. It focuses on multisensory skills that can be cultivated in everyone from a young age. What kinds of design exercises are effective for equipping children and youth with the fundamental design skills necessary to analyse and assess everyday environments? Drawing on her experience as a professional designer Masayo Ave created three design exercises and implemented them in Design Experience Workshop: a series of design lessons for children and youth held in Red Dot Design Museum Essen as part of EU PROUD project. The aim was to sensitise children and youth to the quality of their living environment. The successful outcomes suggest also that the new form of design education could reconcile the world of arts, humanities and sciences in children's everyday experiences.

Cultivating the sense of wonder - New design education for children and youth



Design is not about products. It is about a discovery process and sensory experience to analyse and assess the quality of living environment. 'Experiencing design' begins with close observation of forms colours, patterns and structures in everyday life and their interrelationships. It focuses on multisensory skills that can be cultivated in everyone from a young age. What kinds of design exercises are effective for equipping children and youth with the fundamental design skills necessary to analyse and assess everyday environments? Drawing on her experience as a professional designer and educator, Masayo Ave had been developing variety of design education programs for children and youth in Europe and Asia in the last decade. In the 50th AXIS forum, she introduce the new design education program composed of variety of design methods which were implemented in Italy, Germany and Singapore in the latest years. The program aims to cultivate children's sense of wonder and sensitise them to the quality of their living environment. The successful outcomes suggest also that the new form of design education could reconcile the world of arts, humanities and sciences in children's everyday experiences.
