Name of Application: MoMA ART LAB
Pros: The app supplies numerous cut out shapes and one button features that can easily alter color and design. It is user-friendly and appropriate for a wide range of ages. The app also provides an idea section with prompts and an activities section that provides step by step directions that are connected to a piece of fine art/artist, such as Create a mobile inspired by Alexander Calder.
Cons: There is a limited amount of drawing features compared to another artmaking apps. I appreciate this “limitation” when working with elementary students, though upper grades might want access to more drawing tools.
I used this app with elementary students to create pathway maps for choreography.
Conclusion/Commentary: This app provides an entry point for connecting dance to fine art. A wonderful and easy way to explore composition and design
