App Review: MoMA's Art Lab

MoMA’s ART LAB is an interactive art tool app for young artists.
Designed by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), this easy-to-use app provides tools for creating, saving, and sharing artwork.
Users begin with a white screen and tools for creating works of art that include lines, shapes, and colors.
The Ideas button helps users experiment with line, shape, and color by providing a series of project starters.
The Activities button provides project suggestions including information about artists, their works, and interactive tools and instructions for how to create a piece of artwork in that style. For instance, students can create mobiles, sound compositions, and shape poems.
The Gallery area displays works of art that have been saved by users.
Librarians will find this tool to be popular with art teachers. Combine it with books associated with art and artists. The app provides audio narration for youth who need this support.
