We all know that children have vivid imaginations and creative visualization comes pretty naturally to them. However, nowadays lots of children are so into ready-made images from sources such as TV, video games, computers and much more, that it is very important to encourage and inspire children to use their imaginations and explore creativity. To help them develop their imaginations and encourage them to follow their creative potential, artists from all over the world have teamed up to create 'The Monster Project', which was featured on Bored Panda before.

Celebrating their 4th year anniversary, the project invites elementary students to draw monsters. Once their monsters are done, artists give them a little of artistic touch by bringing them to life. Then, the new interpretations are delivered back to children in order to demonstrate new art techniques within the original creative context.

Scroll down the page and see how monsters are being brought to life!

There actually isn't a huge difference in the drawings here. The kid who drew the original is very talented.

"Naschkatze unter den Geleebohnenbäumen" translates to something like "Snacking cat under the jelly bean trees". There is no proper word for "Naschkatze" in English though. Maybe snacky cat? Someone who loves to eat sweets.
