When it comes to parenting, creativity is key. There have been so many moments in the past 12 months when sanity has been saved by getting my girls offline and into a craft, book or art project. To inspire them, I make sure my home is well stocked with the tools of the trade -- like art supplies, reading materials and a high quality printer. I want to help you learn how to turn your home into a creativity hub with Epson. And offer you the chance to win some pretty cool prize bundles too. 

How Turn Your Home into a Creativity Hub with Epson

How Color Affects Imagination

Color is at the forefront of the imagination – it has the ability to breathe life into drawings and stories, inspire creativity, encourage future dreams, as well as enhance learning both inside and outside the traditional classroom. To underscore its passion for innovation and color, Epson is sponsoring Crayola IDEAworks: The Creativity Exhibition at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia.

For over a century, Crayola has sparked imagination and ignited creativity all over the world. Best known for their iconic box of crayons, the spectrum of Crayola products is rooted in innovation and invention. To support the Crayola IDEAworks exhibition, Epson printers and projectors are providing families with an immersive experience in the exhibit. IDEAworks is all about creativity and encourages kids and families to express themselves through color, whether that be through expressive art or everyday problem solving.

Creativity Matters 

The limited run at The Franklin Institute opened in February and closes in July of 2021. Now is the time to plan your visit and start dreaming. Epson wants to remind you that creativity is innately inside all of us — we just need to ignite it!

Open your MIND. make your MARK. color your WORLD.

Now, when it comes to the tools, let's talk about how Epson fits in. We rely on our EcoTank to help with printing photos for collages, coloring pages and other art projects. We love this printer because we are never stuck without ink. It prints bold, vibrant colors and most important is super reliable and earth friendly.

Plan Your Visit to Crayola IDEAworks at the Franklin Institute

Start your Crayola IDEAworks visit in the Introductory Theater that uses Epson Pro projectors with 4K Enhancement Technology. From there guests can "Travel to Mars" and tackle the challenges of living an active lifestyle in space. In the Space Sportsplex, guests design a ball to try to hit a target in Mars’ low gravity atmosphere—things are not as easy as they are on Earth! Traveling to the depths of the ocean, guests can problem solve like marine biologists and use their creativity to play sounds to regenerate a coral reef ecosystem through a reactive projection.

The Grand Finale will also include multiple in touchscreen kiosks that incorporate Epson ColorWorks® C3500 label printers. Guests tap RFID wristbands one last time to reveal their creative style, showing individual strengths through a character profile. Advance ticket purchase is highly recommended for all guests, including members.
