at the same time, which is one of many types of thoughts.
‘Observation’ is closely examining an object or phenomena. The reason that NOLJAK has adopted observation in art education is to emphasize the act of looking as the fundamentals of a drawing action. Generally, observation quantifies objectively the thing that is observed in the perspective of science, but NOLJAK’s observation contains what you saw and felt. The observation process, in which one object is experienced and felt with various senses, and thinking process, in which information is stored and handled with ones own translation processes, are defined as thinking observation by NOLJAK, and was established as our educational philosophy.
Depending on how experience of senses and thinking process are express through a child,
the area can be infinite. Through thinking observation, children can express their feelings and thoughts in various ways. Dances expressed with bodies, music expressed with sounds, languages expressed with speaking or writing, and arts expressed with images are some examples.
All these expressions begin with thinking observations.
NOLJAK’s thinking observation develops creative expressions. New ideas are added to original thoughts, and the process of materializing one by one is repeated and becomes a habit, which makes children develop their thoughts and their expressions become more sophisticated, equipping them with the strength to complete creative products. The habits formed in childhood will be realized as NOLJAK’s strength when they try to solve concrete problems after growing up to be adults. I am very confident that NOLJAK’s thinking observation is the biggest motivation that can create hopes for children’s future.
