The Monster Project Empowers Kids' Minds

Remember how awesomely vivid your imagination was as a child? We were all brilliant artists, and we had no idea. You didn’t have to draw within the lines, dogs could have 16 legs if they wanted, and when it came to imagining the monsters in your mind your brain really let loose. No rules!

The Monster Project capitalizes on the incredible elasticity of the creative minds of children by having artists recreate the images that kids have produced and running them through their own own artistic filters. The results are incredible – you get the creative ideation from the children and a graduated aesthetic form from the artists. After the new work of art is created by the professional their creation is given back to the child, teaching them how valuable their imaginative thinking truly is.

“Then, when we deliver these new interpretations back to the students in person, we are able to demonstrate new art techniques within their original creative context,” wrote the project website.“They are able to see what their idea sparked in others.”

This is a major win for innovative arts programs, so donate to their Kickstarter, then check out all the awesome monsters we collected.

Don’t forget to SHARE the imagination.
