Faces iMake is a tool for creating collages using pictures of every-day objects but Faces iMake is much more than that:

* It is a tool for expanding VISUAL AWARENESS and VISUAL ASSOCIATIONS, activities mostly controlled by our right brain.
Indeed, Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, put it very well when he said, "It is fun and addicting if you can get it away from your kids."
* It is an intuitive tool for CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES.
Shannon Des Roches Rosa, editor of The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism, wrote: "Our kids love Faces iMake ... its interface is one of the best I've seen for kids with autism."
* It enables kids' EXPRESSION IN A NON VERBAL WAY. An enthusiastic student will have more incentive to articulate on his/her creation.

What's New

Version 2.5

WHAT’S NEW IN THIS UPDATE?

Faces iMake is most of all about LEARNING TO OBSERVE and DISCOVER.
In this MAJOR UPDATE, we introduce a wonderful new tool for observation which we simply call IDEAS.
These are new background shapes which will act as creative triggers for you. Observe these shapes carefully, discover what they 'want to become' and enhance them in your own creative way. The same background shape will spark different ideas in different users and that is what we love about it!
As always and in tune with INNOVATIVE EDUCATION we believe in OPEN and FLEXIBLE environments.
Try different IDEA Backgrounds and see where they lead you!
Very soon there will be MORE!

In addition we are happy to include 2 new categories:
1- NATURE Category will help you discover and play with the beauty of nature.
2- SURPRISE Category is filled with fun and unexpected treasures. (This is our new FAVORITE category! and we will update it very often!)

ANNOYING & DISTRACTING music

KB4art

I have wanted to purchase this app for my elementary art students for some time, and finally bit the $4 bullet (I've never spent that much on ANY app-even for myself-so this was a big purchase). The app is very detailed and offers many choices of items with which to build faces. However, the multitude if options causes the app to be a bit more complex than I thought it would be. I had planned to use this with 1st graders, in a one-iPad-classroom with 30+ kids, but I am concerned it will be a little more complicated and time consuming for many of the kids to use in my intended setting. (If this app were to be used with unlimited time, kids would eventually figure out how to manipulate everything.)

Although the overall design and content is excellent, I gave this app only 3 stars. The reason for a lower rating is the highly annoying and distracting sound effects and music. I know the music can be paused, but I don't want it on at all, especially in a classroom. The sound effects are cute but the novelty wears off almost immediately. Plus, I haven't found a way to turn off the sound effects, which should certainly be customizable especially given the high price paid for the app that seems to have all the bells and whistles (literally)! The sounds are so astonishingly annoying that I was compelled to lower my rating for the otherwise excellent app (but where is the Undo button?). Please update to mute all sounds!

Outstanding!

Faces iMake is a truly innovative and unique creativity app, where you use common objects to make a face or picture. Using a preset base, or your own photo, you can add objects and turn, resize, or copy them multiple times for making layers or patterns; Why not make a nose out of a bowling pin...hair from multiple teddy bears, or an owl out of lace gloves? Great for sequencing and targeting skills - pinching, elongating and placement of pieces are a few of the motor actions that can be practiced. There are even a replicas of famous paintings like the Mona Lisa and Girl with a Pearl Earring in the FaceWorld Archives to get you inspired. I love how this app teaches re-purposing objects, and to actually look at things in a new light. I feel this helps children learn to think in an expansive manner...rather than just thinking in habitual linear patterns. The tutorials are wonderfully done, and the narration places you in a playful mood. Highly Recommended .

Fun and Whimsical Creativity

Terrific2s

Funny, whimsical fun awaits those who get this app.
It was easy enough for the younger kids in my class to get the basics of this app, though I see how it would be more appropriate for the 6-8 range as it does have layers of complexity to it. The controls for object placement, resizing and rotation are intuitive and easy to use. The saving and sharing features of this app work great for me. It is also great that this app allows photos to be imported and modified and used as a base for creativity.
