Lots of children these days are so much into technology that they have no interest to pick up a pencil once in a while anymore. The Monster Project, which was featured on Bored Panda before, aims to change that. It is based out of Texas and brings together elementary students and more than 100 professional artists that work together “to help children recognize the power of their own imaginations and to encourage them to pursue their creative potential.” Inspired by children’s doodles, artists recreate them in their own unique way, making it fun not only for the kids, but also for themselves.

"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," reads their website. "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."

Scroll down to see the adorable results of children and artists collaboration from the last year for yourself!
