Marres developed a version of The Invisible Collection especially for elementary school students in which children from 4 to 12 years old describe their favorite work of art. They explain what they see, feel, smell, and imagine when they think about the artwork. This project teaches children a valuable lesson: through the description of what they see and hear, they become acquainted with the concept of perspective and taste. Teachers can use The Invisible Collection archive to teach students about themes like identity, culture, society, language and history. In 2019, this project was nominated for the Dutch Museum Prize.
