My niece and nephew love to color and draw, so when I was asked to review the App called Mini Monet Creative Studio and Art Club for Kids, I was more then happy to. I downloaded the App to my iPad and then I let them have fun.
The key features of the app are :
1. Unbounded Creativity — A new creative drawing challenge pops up in the App every Friday. The Lite version allows users to submit to 10 challenges
2. It has a unique Magic Pencil, when kids draw with the magic pencil, it keeps brush strokes, marker and paint bucket from spilling out. For instance if a child draws the sun with the magic pencil ( a closed circle ) and then uses a brush tool to color it inside, the brush color will not spill out of the circle. This helps kids draw neatly.
3. Art Club – Kids can browse and view the work of other little artists. In the Lite version kids can only browse, in the Full Version they can share their work too.
4. Rewards – Kids get coins for coloring, sharing and appreciating others work. With the coins they can unlock more pages to color!
Miguel had so much fun playing around with the App. I loved watching how creative he got with called Mini Monet Creative Studio and Art Club for Kids. Mini Monet has been designed with love for kids aged 6-8, it is a creative environment for kids to explore art. Making art simulates the right hemisphere of the brain. By stimulating and exercising the right hemisphere of the brain, the arts strengthen the connection between the hemispheres, thus achieving the full potential of the mind.
The one thing I think keeps Miguel hooked to the App is when he collect his coins. The smile on his face is priceless! I love that it has a weekly challenge. Each week, a new drawing challenge is posted. Kids get two new stickers whenever they participate in a challenge. Challenges are age appropriate and full of surprises.
Mini Monet has an Art Club powered by the creations of the little artists. The Art Club is a safe environment for children to share their art with others, see what other artists have created and appreciate their work and be creative! In the LITE version, the Art Club is only available for Browsing. This App has two versions, a free LITE version and a paid version ($1.99). With the Lite version you are limited in selection of stickers, backgrounds, textures and coloring pages; but if you upgrade there are so many options available that the kids can create art for hours.
You can download Mini Monet Creative Studio and Art Club for Kids Lite Free from iTunes.
