If you already follow me on social media then you have probably seen my collaborations with young artists through the Monster Project. I heart the Monster Project….like, a lot. I often feel like I understand the mind of a young artist over the minds of most adults. And, as I have mentioned several times before, I love to do anything I can to encourage young people to pursue their love of creating art. With that said, I was too excited to be a part of their Monster Project Unite Instagram Challenge.
What does the Monster Project do?
We simply invite Elementary students to draw monsters. Once their creations have taken shape, we bring them to life in our own artistic styles. 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. They are able to see what their idea sparked in others. ~The Monster Project
I have absolutely loved working on these illustrations and certainly feel inspired by the work of these young artists.
If you have a young artist who may want to submit a monster or if you are an artist who would like to participate, please go to The Monster Project for more information. To see more submissions from other artists, search the hashtag #MonsterProjectUNITE on Instagram.
