Although the education curriculum of society and the school has continuously changed, as well as the students thoughts and attitudes, the reality is that the educational space has maintained its former appearance. The problem with the current school space is that through the introduction of the “Standard Design Plan for School Facilities” in 1962. This study is research on learning in an art course for first year high school students who participated in an activity called, If Umbrellas Poured From the Sky , which was a public art project about school space improvement. The purpose of this research is to explore the meaning of education at the process by which students engage in changes in school space.
The educational activities were conducted in the art room with a total of three classes, while some classes had a total of four classes. After setting the theme of the project with everyone who uses the school space, the class took place in earnest. In the first period, we compared the school space of the past and present by looking at the differences and similarities, and in the second period, we began to express ourselves using umbrellas. The results of the work done with the students are as follows.
First, it provided an opportunity to freely express beyond the evaluation and ability-oriented expression activities.
Second, I discovered that students voluntarily considered and helped their friends. Third, the contents and outcomes of the lessons become more than just grade outputs, and became a “medium” for everyone s communication.
