My invisible studio / Drawing tent for kids

My invisible studio
My invisible studio

My Invisible Studio is a multi-functional drawing mat that encourages young kids to perceive the environment as well as interacting with other people through making and creating. Each piece of the mat is made from transparent TPU (child-safe), which can be colored with washable paints. In the edges of each triangular piece, there are flexible stainless steel frames inside (similar to a pop-up tent), so that the studio can be folded into a portable size and easy for storage. The kids can build the tent first and then to draw inside or outside the unique space they just created.
