PlayART for iPad – Uniting classic art and children’s creativity

Created by Tapook, PlayART is an iPad app aimed at children aiming to unite the worlds of classic art and children’s creativity. Designed for children aged 5-13, but suitable for parents too, you can play with objects and shapes taken from these artists’ original paintings, move, rotate and resize them however they like to make new creations, including combining elements from several or all of the painters.

Five painters are included: Van Gogh, Klee, Rousseau, Monet and Cézanne.

We think it’s about time children were given the chance to mash up classic artworks and create their own paintings with Van Gogh’s sunflowers, Monet’s waterlilies and Cézanne’s fruit. This way, they learn while playing and exercise their creativity.

The team is currently working on the next release of the app which will feature five new artist and interactive features.
