The country is also a forerunner in modern art and design; its boldly minimalistic aesthetic approach imitated and aspired to around the world. Our Art and Design-focused school trip allows students to explore the work of practitioners using both traditional and modern techniques.
Here we bring you a bit more information about the trip, as well as suggesting how teachers and students can make the most out of the itinerary.
Tokyo Animation College offers a broad range of courses from Voice Acting and Video Game Production to Anime Illustration and Character Design. On the second day of this trip, students will have the chance to see students and staff at work as they take a guided tour of the campus in the Kasai neighbourhood of Tokyo.
On Day 3, students will visit the studio of Koshun Masunaga, a renowned artist who lives and works in Tokyo. Masunaga-sensei uses India ink to create bold, expressive works; putting her own spin on the Ancient Japanese art of shodō (calligraphy). On Day 6 of the trip in Kyoto, students will attend a calligraphy lesson, led by another master of the art.
