|A Practical Study on a Workshop Using a Picture Scroll (Emaki) - Narikiri Emaki Project
|In this workshop titled メNarikiri Emaki Projectモ, we introduce a practical study using Emaki (picture scroll), from which Japanese animation is said to have derived.
We have two aims to carry out this study: One is to explore the practice of メlearning through expressionモ, and the other is to formulate its supportive theory. We have already conducted メNarikiri Emakiモ for several times in Japan and in Italia, expecting student's cross-cultural understanding. The article centers on the workshop held in May 24, 2006, for the students at Centro Linguistico di Ateneo (the Language Center) Universita degli Studi Firenze (the University of Florence) and in August 19,2006, for primary students at Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennaole 2006.
We created this program to allow the students carry out two purposes:
1) To learn the characteristics and the essence of Emaki appreciation
2) To present their favorite Emaki, using their bodies to express.
The メEmakiモ reconstructed by the students displayed globalized aspects based on animation and cartoon cultures, along with expressions based on aspects such as nationalities and personalities. We would like to state that students have acquired dynamic and multilayered expressions through acting each character in Emaki.
