Three Layers of “Flesh” Provided by YMM’s Curriculum System

 

1) Aesthetic Courses for the First Layer: Taste

Aesthetics is an approach to exploring and appreciating the nature of art and beauty. YMM’s aesthetic courses pinpoint the approach that fosters refined taste from 16 systematic perspectives including games with dots, lines, and shapes, recognition and games with colors, contrast colors, warm and cool colors, composition, space, associative thinking, reverse thinking, emotion expression, experience of new media, behavior art, exotic art, expression of themes, and so on. Students will learn aesthetic patterns, master the principles, and form independent aesthetic perception.

 

2) Creative Courses for the Second Layer: Competence

Creative courses aim to stimulate innovation and invention. They improve problem-solving capacity and build a creativity-oriented mindset, which are key to personal competence. To do so, YMM designs a series of creative courses that include design, handicraft, script creation of comics and animation, collaborative creation, etc. Giving free reign to creation and imagination, these courses allow students to lead the way by themselves in the whole process, from ideation to creation.

 

3) Multicultural Courses for the Third Layer: Refinement

Refinement here means the quality of cultured elegance in one’s behavior, manner, and the way of treating others. To cultivate a peaceful and inclusive mentality, YMM also develops courses on diverse cultures, regional art, and customs. Teachers from Europe, America, Northeast Asia, West Asia, and so on lecture courses with styles and features of their own culture. Meanwhile, other courses on sinology, etiquette, and culture appreciation are included to give students a broad and global vision.
