Abstract

In the majority of cases our experiences of artworks in galleries and museums is as passive observers. While this is widely accepted practice in terms of preserving the artworks it limits the engagement potential with younger visitors. In this paper we present a way of using augmented reality (AR) technology to create engaging and personal art experience for such an audience. To achieve this, we built a prototype for a treasure hunt style game where players colour a contour drawing not knowing what exactly they are colouring. However, they are told that if this coloured drawing is placed correctly, it should wrap around a 3D object (statue) or overlay a 2D canvas (picture) somewhere in the gallery. In the paper we present an evaluation of the augmented colouring aspect of the proposed game with nine K-6 children.
