Art Puzzles: Sliding Slices
By Tipitap Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This fun app introduces kids and adults to 110 wonderful public domain paintings in art history — from da Vinci to Van Gogh.
The puzzles are created by slicing the painting into strips and scrambling the slices. To solve the puzzle simply slide the slices into the right position.
Trying to solve the puzzles makes kids focus on the paintings with a degree of concentration and detail that a casual glance at a book or even a museum visit cannot achieve. This helps shape not only their general knowledge of art, but also their aesthetic sensibilities long before then can learn the names of the artists and paintings. They will learn to see the world through the eyes of these great masters while they discover the diversity of styles and techniques used in painting.
Listen to 5 classical pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Berliotz and Sousa while you solve the puzzles!
This app includes 100+ paintings by renowed artists including Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Goya, Gauguin, Cèzanne, Seurat, Monet, Pissarro, da Vinci, Rousseau, and Velazquez among many other great masters.
34 difficulty levels (from 6 slices to 40) means fun for children, from older toddlers to teenagers, and adults too!
Challenge your friends or beat your own score and solve the puzzles in the least number of moves.
The Slideshow function allows you to turn your iPad into a portable museum.
Each painting contains basic information: artist, title, year.
Learning fun, fun learning.

I got this app because I love puzzles and who wouldn't want to look at beautiful art? I've found so much more to appreciate, though. My children like to use this app, too. When the picture is sliced up and moved around you have to look for all kinds of clues to help you decipher the puzzle. It's given me opportunities to talk to them about lines and movement, color, light, and how to look for small details. It's been a really fun experience. Thank you so much for this app!

Wonderful puzzle. I like the way the pieces can be sliced to change the difficulty.
