On the day before the award ceremony, the participants took a tour of the CREARE Atami Yugawara Studio (Atami City, Shizuoka Prefecture; 80km south west of Tokyo), where they learned about the production process of public art works such as stained glass and ceramic relief panels. In the afternoon, the students moved to the Creare Art Museum, a multi-purpose facility adjacent to the studio, to work on workshops. They combined colorful glass and ceramic pieces on a plate and completed their artwork in an hour. The artwork was displayed at the reception venue the next day. In parallel with the students’ workshop, a roundtable discussion was held among art university’s professors from Japan and abroad, where they exchanged opinions on the art education.
