The popularity of Wayang Kulit is decreasing especially among the Malaysian youth; therefore something should be done to revive its glory. The aim of this research is to expose the Malay traditional game to the Malaysian youth mainly to the Net Generations. Prototype of Wayang Kulit online game was developed based on the feedbacks gathered from interviews with Wayang Kulit expertise and game developers. Questionnaire and prototype of the Wayang Kulit Online Game were distributed among the youth at the age of 13‐25 years old. A total of 122 participated in the study and the data were analyzed. 13 25 The findings from data analyzed shows that Wayang Kulit online game was well accepted among our Net Generations. According to overall comments from this group, after playing Wayang Kulit online game, they had a chance to learn about Wayang Kulit which they were not exposed to before. Subsequently, from the survey results, it shows that Wayang Kulit online game has a good potential in the game industry, but requires further development to make it more interesting, attractive and informative.

The ruins and the remaining of the western civilization are still available nowadays. Due to the fact that Malaysia has tropical season, season most of the historical relics are at risk of being exposed to the open weather without an appropriate preservation preservation. The western tombstone at St. Paul Church has been excavated and relocated by the British in early 1930’s. Several tombstones were cracked, symbols and inscriptions were hard to interpret due to the age, damaged, uncompleted, vandalism and these granite stones were brought and carved by the Europeans. Today smart phone has become popular device that would contribute in preserving and digitization of the western tombstone in Malacca. The mobile application or apps allows capturing QR code pattern on any platform of mobile devices at the determine location of the tombstone at St. Paul church. This would help the tombstones in meagre condition and among the p g g rest to be digitally documented in the form of interactive mobile application which includes image gallery, translation of the classical Dutch and Portuguese writings and the extraction of the interpretation of the symbol of the dead ones. These informatics apps would help to attract tourists and preserve heritage closer to youngsters in more attractive, interactive and mobile for the future generation of Malaysian. • • • •

Buddhism and painting have always been significant for me. I have been practicing my religion and art since I was a child. But, I did not consider about a link between these two important parts in my life until I went to Australia. Due to the circumstances and difficulties of my life in Australia, I began to realise that these two important parts of my life were separated from my day‐to‐day existence and so I started to make links between my art, Buddhism and my life through my painting. My mind is always influenced by Eastern thinking. I have been contacting with Western art tradition since I was a child, so I use Western painting as a vehicle to explore my mind. Due to my painting “style”—figuration, I studied Western painters like Caravaggio, Jacques‐ Louis David and Eugene Delacroix in order to improve my use of figure, painting skill and technique, and also the knowledge of art. I have used painting as a way to express my thoughts and feelings about the circumstances that have happened to or around me. These paintings enable me to question my life and my religious belief. From these questions, I tried to put Buddhism into practise and make a connection to my life I believe that, as a Buddhist and artist, I have a responsibility to raise the realization of the need for humanity and spiritual life in contemporary society, and my painting is a vehicle for conveying my understanding of Buddhism and sharing my life experience.

According to Action Research reports from course instructors, most of the creative works produced are stereotype and lack of original characteristics. At tertiary level, most of the students are doing assignments for submission and credit-earning purpose. Those submissions have failed to demonstrate high standard of creative communication in which reflect individual competency in knowledge and skills learned. This paper is interested to investigate the possibility of Problem-based Learning infusion into creative design subjects, in order to help students to think active and produce quality design portfolios. Problem-Based Learning is an instructional methodology in which students are encouraged to engage with all possible problems and solutions before making any conclusive decision. One of the important features of Problem-Based Learning is to expose students with ‘real-world’ problems, and PBL is a learning methodology through series of active critical thinking and creative thinking process. The objective of this research will provide evidences of PBL effectiveness in nurturing effective learning in creative design education. It also helps to produce learners who are not only learning by memorizing theories, but will be able to think effectively and apply skills and knowledge taught in classes. At UTAR, final year Graphic Design students are required to propose a project brief from a self-directed market analysis. The project brief could possible come from a new created commercial brand from either a product, a service or a new business idea. Subsequently, students are expected to produce a series of effective communications in supporting the new commercial brand in a proposed advertising campaign. From this research, the investigation studies will be focused on the design process documentation from the students’ design workbook. The transformation process of the creative idea development will serve as evidences of PBL infusion effectiveness. The research findings will able to provide educators as an extra reference to decide the implementation of PBL instruction model in future.

Students that are able to appreciate a work of art are also able to value and produce a good piece of work. The research will be conducted using the proposed new model and correlated with studio production of the first year graphic design students of Faculty of Creative Industries at a private university. The objectives of this study are to identify degree of knowledge and understanding of art appreciation, to develop and enhance y y g g g pp , p art appreciation using the proposed approach to identify the significant correlation between students’ art appreciation ability scores and studio production scores in visual communication subject. The conceptual framework was developed for this study.

As time and costs are important factors in commercial, mass‐produced ceramic products, this research looks into alternative ways to speed up the visualization process, reduce wastage and ultimately reduce costs bringing a ceramic art piece to market. Prototyping with the help of 3D Modeling software is looked at, and the pros and cons of this technique are considered. Also, with the help of state‐of‐the‐art 3D printing, a new way of ceramic mould‐making is introduced. In the past, a mould was created out of clay, shaped according to the client’s requirements then used as the mould to create subsequent ceramic copies Usually the mould‐making would go through several iterations and the original clay sculpture may be copies. Usually, mould making discarded if the clay mould was way too different from the client’s requirements. This process could potentially be tedious and time‐consuming and lack details in the ceramic product itself. This is partly to do with the limitations of the ceramic material itself. Finalised and glazed ceramic products tend to lose fine details in the final stages once it is fired up in the oven. With the new workflow, the ceramic mould is previsualised using 3D software. Changes to the looks could be easily manipulated and done with fast turn‐around times. Also, with the intricacies of a high‐end 3D printer, higher and finer detail could be incorporated into the ceramic mould; especially details too fine for human hands to sculpt. Only when the virtual mould was up to the client’s satisfaction, then 3D printing would commence. The choice material for 3D printing was plastic resin, which was cost effective with fast turnaround times. The 3D printed object was then used as a mould by which to make subsequent ceramic products. This process is not without its weaknesses and challenges The findings from this research shows a potential new workflow to create new and innovative ceramic challenges. products. In this study, only hollow, ceramic penholders with organic shapes were considered. More studies and tests need to done on other forms of ceramic products to see the effectiveness of the new workflow and whether it can be applied to other forms of ceramic production. Challenges Faced Cost. Not economic to mass produce. Printer itself Design limitations Material flaws Strengths of 3D Prototyping Weaknesses of 3D prototyping Strengths of 3D Printing What can a 3D printer do?
