How I Use It
I plan to use this app in Middle School Art class as an "adapted" activity for special needs students. The app has a lot to offer, including ideas for activities inside the app. These activity ideas can be listened to, or read, which supports different types of learners. The area where you create the artwork has a very simple design and is easy to use, especially for low-level learners.
My Take
Overall, this is a great app to use for students to let their creativity run wild while providing some ideas for where to start. Its' user-friendly design allows any student to create a work of art. The artwork can be saved to the camera roll, tweeted, emailed, or shared with MoMA. The sharing features can be turned off by default, but turned on through the iPad settings. I do wish that by default you could save to the camera roll only - but, it's all or nothing in regards to the sharing.
