An Arts and Design-Thinking Education
Adapted from existing Design Thinking models - d.school K-12 lab at Stanford University & IDEO’s Design for Learning tool-kit, our curriculum aims to marry the playfulness and introspection of the arts with the human-centredness, multi-disciplinary and foresightedness of design-thinking, to nurture critical thinkers of the present and creative dreamers of tomorrow.
