Over two years have passed since the Department of Awesomely Good Deeds first discovered an awesome ongoing program called The Monster Project (previously featured here) which is all about helping children “recognize the power of their own imaginations and to encourage them to pursue their creative potential.” Based in Austin, TX, The Monster Project invites elementary school students to draw monsters and send them in. Then their team of over 100 professional artists recreates the monsters in their own artistic styles and later shares them with the kids in person.

“…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.”
