archive article, added 09/02/2005
This year at The Classic kids will be able to do something
they've never done there before: be creative with their voices. Using Voice
Painter, kids will create amazing paintings with their voices. The kids don't
have to be artists to create fascinating paintings -- all they have to do is
talk, sing or just make funny noises into a microphone to create dynamic,
Voice Painter will be featured at Kids Day, which is returning for the ninth
year to The Hampton Classic on Saturday, September 3rd, from 10am to 5pm. It
will be sponsored by Cablevision, and promises to be the best ever. Voice
Painter will be in the World of the Horse Tent in the Exhibition and Kids
area near the main entrance to the Boutique Garden shopping area. Kids and
their parents and grandparents will find out why "Coooooooool" is
how people describe Voice Painter. Voice Painter is interactive, creative
fun, and has been featured at private and public events for over two years.
Kids will be able to get their one of a kind creations on attractive 8x10
mats for display. "What we are doing is all about giving kids the
opportunity to be 'positively creative' as never before. We will be making
and other multimedia software we're developing available to kids everywhere
in the coming months and years", according to Tom Riedl, the software's
primary creator. In addition to the art the kids take away with them from the
event, their creations will be put on the www.voicepainter.com website for
friends and family anywhere to see and enjoy. People will also be able to get
the kids' voice paintings on various items from the website to give as gifts.
This summer Voice Painter was used by kids at the Parrish Art Museum, at the Quogue and East Hampton libraries, and at Camp Karole. If you want to know

Other products made from these paintings will be available on the website.
"Voice Painter touches and stirs a child's creative urge" observes
Sheila Sweeney, a children's educational specialist. "It fosters
creativity, and allows all children, even those who are not technically
proficient with a pencil and paper, to finish stunning works of art, thus
enhancing their ability to see themselves as creators". Voice Painter
helps every kid feel special and creative.
