Imagine an artistic space for children that knows no boundaries and where coloring inside the lines doesn’t exist. A place where traditional art materials are questioned and provoked in new, unconventional methods of drawing. Mathery Studio was able to create such a space recently with their Pastello Draw Art project. Commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria, the goal was to “design an immersive kids space focused on transforming perception surrounding the simple act of drawing.”
Take a look at the playful and inspiring photos which show kids drawing with helmets carrying pastel spheres, utensils dipped in colored wax, or sandals with bright spheres of color attached. This immersive art playground welcomes all kinds of art interpretations, from drawing on the walls, to in-between furniture.
I know we can’t all have a museum space to to carry this out, but Mathery Studio’s vivid and creative designs have got me inspired to think of art with my kids in all new kinds of ways.
