Art-Apps for kids

Apps are currently especially popular, if they are aimed at a young audience and have a playful look at art. Often designed by Museums in collaboration with computer manufacturers, new ways of art education are pursued with these apps and enable a whole new confrontation with the matter. The child-friendly applications that already exist in large numbers, should not only encourage children's creativity at an early age, but rather also explain our art in all forms in a playful manner.

1)      Imagoras - The Return of the images (Städel Museum):

The renowned Städel Museum has developed an adventure game for kids over 8 years with this app with which the world of art can be discovered through play.  A little fellow named Flux leads through a fantastic world where you have to solve tricky puzzles and discover secrets or rescue lost images from the darkness. It is a playful way to explore Masterpieces from the Collection of the Städel Museum and learn about various artistic approaches from different periods of art history, from Vermeer via Manet up to abstract directions.

Free for iOS and Android (Tablet)

2)      MoMA Art Lab (The Museum of Modern Art)

At first glance the MoMA Art Lab may seem like a classic drawing-app, but it is far more demanding and allows children to deal with various creative tasks and works. Starting from one well-known work, the young users should be inspired by famous artists, and then imitate the different artistic styles in their own pictures. Thus, both abstract compositions in the style of Brice Marden or cutouts à la Matisse can be made. The app combines in these ways art historical knowledge with a strong creative part, where you can experiment with different forms and techniques.
For iPad / 3.99 EUR

3)      PlayART (Tapook Publishing)

Also with this creative learning app the little ones can create own art, based on the famous originals by masters of the 19th and 20th centuries such as Cézanne, Monet and Vincent van Gogh. As with a puzzle you can view various objects from the masterpieces such as flowers or vases and combine them with brushstrokes and join them together to an individual compositions. Children receive with each work of art in high-definition an empathetic insight into the world of art. There is also a brief portrait of each artist, which is shown as a small child-friendly character like in a comic book.

For iPad / 3.99 EUR
