"MoMA Art Lab creates one of the most creative and inspiring experiences that I've encountered since the iTunes Store opened. The tools are easy to use and produce fascinating artwork. The six [now nine] activities based on the work of real artists make brilliant use of the iPad."
—Jinny Gudmundsen, "iPad Apps for Kids for Dummies"
Get creative and use the MoMA Art Lab app to make a sound composition, a shape poem, a group drawing, and more, then save and share your artwork (parental setting available).

—Parents' Choice Foundation
"I selected this app as one of my Ten Favorite Kid Apps because it does more than simply encourage artistic creation. This app changes the way kids look at art."

What's New in Version 1.2.2
The colors that are provided are so great ! I've been looking for an app that gave many colors and this app delivered just that! The only thing that I am a little bit disappointed by is the art tools you can only use. There really isn't many! Also when you want to shrink the shapes it is a bit hard since you have to touch the shape with both fingers and we really don't have skinny fingers that will shrink them as small as we need them. But still that doesn't stop me from loving the app !
I work for hours there is so much to work with. And I just discovered the many trays of colors. One thing I would love is the ability to email my work to friends.
My daughters love this app
It is important for me to expose my children to as much art as possible. This app is perfect for creating art on the go. I love the MoMA website and this app does not disappoint.
