School of Intuition
The Society’s School of Intuition enhances traditional academic learning, emphasizing resourcefulness, intuitive problem solving, kinesthetic learning and spatial-mechanical aptitude to spark greater ingenuity, imagination and creativity.
The School of Intuition provides educational workshops, talks and learning experiences for the public such as Corrugated Headgear, The Daily Doodle, The Art of Kinetics and Bevelvision Apprenticeship program. The creative principles that guide the School of Intuition are contained in the Ministry of Motion credo, and include 12 concepts that Mat Bevel will stake his reputation on.
Corrugated Headgear Workshop
In this workshop, students create unique headgear—hats, helmets and masks—from corrugated cardboard strips, white glue, masking tape and wrapping paper. In the spirit of resourceful behavior, we use common throw-away items to make peculiar things of beauty. The materials are simple and easy to work with yet challenging. Structure and aesthetics cooperate and encourage problem solving as a way of making functional art.
This workshop provides hands-on learning for intuitive, non-goal oriented object making. Not only does our approach consider this essential for art making and everyday decision making, but it is also a working method that our consumer ideology purposely tries to discourage.
This popular workshop for all ages and skill levels, encourages problem solving, playful dexterity and stylish recycling. The art making process demonstrates good work ethics by encouraging habits of problem solving, concentration, trail and error and mastery of skills.
Bevelvision Apprenticeship Program
With the Society’s launch of Bevelvision, the School of Intuition is now developing an apprenticeship program for high school students—a real world learning lab—where young professionals are trained on the production sets of Bevelvision. Students will be exposed in a hands-on way to theater and cinematography production, cultivating skills in live-action videography, stop-motion animation, time-lapse photography, web development and social media.
