Abstract: Our interest in kindergarten children led us to develop the prototype of an art experience system, which is easy to work with using children’s imagination. For children, art appreciation is important for cultivating sensibility and creativity by imagining the meaning of works of interest. However, it is difficult for them to understand artworks. It is also difficult for kindergarten children who are not interested and have poor imagination to imagine the meanings of works. Therefore, we propose an art experience system that boosts kindergarten children’s interest and imagination. As a prototype, we developed a system based on pretend play with animals. The system provides children with an opportunity to imagine contact with invisible animals from the movements of the person and of the projected footprints. In this paper, we describe the results of evaluation experiments conducted on 37 kindergartners using this prototype.
