Picasso once said "every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once he/she grows up". Although we celebrate the creativity that inspires art, and the artists who inspire creativity, much of art education today focuses on specific techniques rather than creativity itself. Nartshell, an exploratory web game, provides underserved students a safe space to flex and hone their creativity as artists. Students travel around in a virtual world of "nartshells" to interact with and learn from characters based on famous artists like Andy Warhol. Moving through progressively harder challenges, students unlock new paintbrushes and other visual effects tools to level up their art ability and creative confidence.
