The exercises in Ilustritas teach kids how to draw and promote creativity in children. Each exercise in Ilustritas shows you new tools. The exercises have been tested with children of different ages. Some children did the exercises at home and others participated in groups, with their teachers and other children.

The development of the illustrations for the exercises was exciting. It was necessary to create illustrations which were both attractive for the children and easy to design through the exercises. Furthermore, it was essential that the children could carry out the exercises immediately and that it was also possible for each one to interpret their own ideas, make their creativity work and thereby continue to discover new possibilities. For months, the teaching methods were polished through prototype exercises which were online for the purpose of testing. Ilustritas is therefore virtually a digital drawing course and it is perfectly suited to both activities in class and activities at home, with the participation of parents, family members and friends.
