Is It Any Good?

While the overall platform is simple, encouraging kids to look at objects as a collection of shapes is a great foundation for creating artwork. Digitalwerkstatt Art Studio has all the elements kids need to express themselves without a lot of distractions. The tutorial can be finicky, often not recognizing correct movements. And it may not be immediately obvious what all of the icons mean. Those hurdles are easy to overcome, however, and kids will quickly be making their own artwork. This is a fun little app that's a great, device-based creative activity.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
