This is my first blog post of 2017 and I am super excited to share with you this little gem of a project I discovered over the holidays while faffing about online.
One of my personal favorite sources for creative inspiration is the art and play of my kiddos, so naturally, The Monster Project piqued my curiosity.
The Monster Project is the undertaking of a passionate collection of artists who share a common goal: to help children recognize the power of their own imaginations and to encourage them to pursue their creative potential.
Artists from all over the world collaborate with elementary school students by inviting them to draw monsters and then recreate them in their own artistic style.
When the new design is hand delivered to the students, the kids are able to see some new art techniques, the creativity that their imaginations inspired, and are also introduced to the idea of art as a valid career path.
