The Monster Project by Katie Johnson

Art director Katie Johnson began the “Monster Project” back in 2010 to help develop children’s creativity and imagination. She asked students from a second grade class in Faubion Elementary in Austin, Texas to draw monsters.

She then created illustrations of the kids’ monsters and gave it back to them. The original versions, alongside the new versions, showed the kids the importance of creativity and originality.

She did a second round in 2011, with the help of fellow artists and illustrators. Through the diverse styles of the artists, kids were able to see, in Katie’s words, “that creativity comes in many forms, and that there are many different ways to think and perceive the world around us.”

Katie hopes to continue reaching out to young students and teach them about their immense potential with another round of this wonderful project this year. Who knew the monster under our beds could be so inspiring?
