Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

If kids aren't already familiar with some of the work of these artists, they won't get as much from the experience, but it's still a fun, creative outlet. Ultimately, it's less about artistic technique or creation and more about art appreciation; the app does reinforce the characteristics of each artist's style, which will develop kids' appreciation and recognition of the artist's works. More background about the artists and their painting styles would boost the learning value.

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.
