Harvest of a Keen Eye

Abstract or Summary of Project

Print | Illustration | Book design

Harvest of a Keen Eye is an initiative targeted at improving visual perception in preschool children. With vision as our primary sense of learning, the ability to discern visually plays a crucial role in education and early childhood development. To maximise the potential of visual experience, it requires adequate practice of retrieving and interpreting visual information all around us. Thus, a series of interactive storytelling fused with stimulating visual activities are introduced in this project to cultivate interest in visual perceptual learning, bringing meaning to the technical aspects of vision training.
