This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Paint with the camera on your device! The colors are all around you!
EyePaint offers your child the opportunity to create amazing images alongside world-renowned artists, by completing their illustrations and making them their own.
Use the mobile device’s camera as a tool to capture colors, patterns and textures to interactively fill areas in the drawings selected by the child.
The final result is a drawing full of organic features, shades and details that cannot be achieved with any other painting app.
The EyePaint interface is colorful, animated and extremely simple - even for very young children.
Tapping on any area in the drawing will reveal the live camera image. The Camera Shutter button then appears enabling users to capture their chosen pattern.
The child is encouraged to explore their surroundings to find the right match for that particular area: a detail from a book page, for example, or a piece of clothing, furniture, or a leaf. The creative possibilities are endless.
The ‘Brush’ option allows users to limit themselves to a specific area where the camera signal appears, allowing for even more possibilities.
The images created can be saved to the device’s Photo Library by tapping the Star icon.
No social sharing features are available within the app, in line with child protection regulations.
EyePaint covers 3 main educational areas:
-The child’s desire to visually explore his/her surroundings
-The relationship between reality as perceived and the symbolic abstraction when applied to the illustrations
-The stimulation to use real-life images to express emotions
What's New in Version 2.2
Curious Playground connection
Fun and clever
Unlike coloring pages with digital brushes, this app uses the camera so you point and click on colors/textures you want in different sections. This is not a hard app to figure out but obviously a tutorial would be useful to some users. I think it's a fun and unique way to look at the world and is more thought provoking and enjoyable than a simple coloring page. Recommend!
Lost at Sea
No instructions or tutorial to be found. App is extremely complex for what it is...a kids toy.
Needs some help in future versions.
No instructions at all
I have no idea how to choose colors. Could only draw with black. Terrible.
