Do you think that time will come when children’s doodles will be more valuable than ever? Since, nowadays, kids grow up playing computer games and not drawing or coloring books. Well, maybe that time has come as there are some artists who use their kids’ drawings as an inspiration for their work.
The Monster Project aims to motivate children to pick up a pencil and make fun drawings instead of just playing games. Based out of Texas, the project brings together over 100 artists and elementary school students in order “to help children recognize the power of their own imaginations and to encourage them to pursue their creative potential.” Then, professional artists recreate the students’ doodles in their unique way.
“With a decreasing emphasis on arts in schools, many children don’t have the opportunity for creative exploration they deserve. That’s a monstrous trend we would like to destroy,” their website, @themonsterproject.org reads. “By collaborating with the students and finding inspiration from their imaginings, we hope to help them recognize the value of their ideas and make them feel excited about the potential of their own minds. Creativity comes in many forms, and we hope to encourage their exploration of their own unique perceptions of the world we share.”
