In art and design education, there are fundamental subjects, such as Art History, Design Management, and programme-specific subjects, such as Drawing, Typography, Printing, etc. are included. Tutors generally taught the concepts and theories of art and design through lectures followed by studio practice. This conventional teaching style was more focused on developing students’ practical and theoretical skills. However, the nature of art and design education has been altered, practical and theoretical trainings were less sufficient to equip students to meet the rapidly changing trends in the art and design field. Studies in art and design education were more human-cantered and more consumer-orientated since they were influenced by technology, psychology than ever before. Therefore, students needed active learning to enrich their art and design education as well as the vibrancy of their art and design outcomes. It was found that the experience in active learning with emotional changes could be used to prompt students to actively engage in their learning activities and experience art and design concepts. Some western counties investigated the application of emotional concerns in art and design curricula. At the same time, active learning was adopted by some universities as the pedagogy of art and design subjects. Emotion would be a possible element to further enacting active learning to enrich the students to actively engage in their learning activities and experience art and design concepts. In this paper, the effectiveness of active learning and its influence on enhancing the experience and learning motivation of art and design students is examined. A case study apply emotional experience in action learning activity was conducted to provide the concrete foundation for further discussions.
