PlayArt – When Art becomes child’s play

Posted filed underApps, Education, Kids, Mobile.

PlayArt let’s you learn and create your work of art with elements taken from the original paintings of five important artists: Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Henri Rousseau and Paul Klee.

Recreate the original painting or have fun composing your own masterpiece. Free the artist in you!


PlayART is an educational app which introduces children and grown-ups alike to the world of art in a stimulating and fun way. The makers from Tapook said: “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.

There are many shapes and styles to discover! More than 100 elements and 25 canvasses, from the artists’ original paintings, to choose from.
Tap, drag and resize the elements on the iPad screen however you like.

You can also duplicate them, or mirror, lock, bring to the front or send to the back, thanks to a practical and easy to use functions menu.

Select the elements you like the most as your favorites to combine them from several or all the artists.
Let your creativity loose!
