It's monstrous that school children aren't allowed to spend more time doing art in schools. Drawing, after all, helps in developing imagination and creativity, improves memory, communication skills, and has many other beneficial aspects. This project aims to change the schools' outlook to doodling, one cool drawing at a time.
The Monster Project, based out of Texas, pairs up elementary students with professional artists; the kids create a monster drawing, and the artist draws or produces a piece inspired by the kids' drawing ideas.
"...we understand how important that initial creative exposure is and how it can truly alter the shape of a child's future," states the project Kickstarter page. "Creativity comes in many forms, and we hope to encourage their exploration of their own unique perceptions of the world we share. And, while we're at it, we want to introduce to them the notion of art as a legitimate career path."
