Meguro Ward Takaban Elementary School

This year marked the sixth implementation of EGAKU as a part of "Yume Plan Takaban" of Takaban Elementary School. 23 students participated and drew their hearts.

"If my heart was a color, what would it be? What kind of shape would it be? If it were a world, what would it contain?" Through creative practice, each student reflected inwardly on their hearts, resulting in the depiction of 23 worlds of the heart.

Below are some comments made by the students:
"I was able to draw my heart freely."
"Mixing colors was fun. Mixing colors made different colors and I was able to understand my heart."
"It was fun to draw while thinking about colors and shapes. It was interesting because everyone's works were different."
"Everyone's colors were pretty. It was beautiful. I'm happy that I like to draw."

This was the second EGAKU program conducted at INTILAQ Tohoku Innovation Center in Sendai as a part of the Being Training Seminar. Same as the last time, participants made work on the theme of "What Drives Me to Action." Being is an aspect of the Harvard Business School's concept of "Knowing, Doing, and Being" that emphasizes the significance of Being (self-awareness) alongside Knowing (knowledge) and Doing (action). With their interest in entreprneurship, the world they expressed were powerful and exuded passion.

Denenchofufutaba Senior High School

This year marked the 4th time conducting the EGAKU Program with grade 3 senior high school students at Denenchofufutaba Senior High School. 

The integration of EGAKU in their graduate project presentation on "The 26 Year-Old Me" was originally proposed by their teacher as a way to help students engage in deeper introspection and self-examination. The program is split into two parts to fit their class schedule with the first session taking place at school and the second part at 92art Studio.

Over the given time, students had dialogues with themselves and others and thought about "The 26 Year-Old Me" through creative practice. We can only imagine what kind of thoughts and feelings are imbued in the 26 year old heart that they expressed through reflection.
