MoMA Art Lab

By MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


"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). Explore how artists use line, shape, and color, discover artists' processes and inspirations, and create your own artwork inspired by MoMA's collection. Artists featured in the MoMA Art Lab app include Henri Matisse, Alexander Calder, Elizabeth Murray, and others.

The MoMA Art Lab app is intended for ages seven and up.

Great colors

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 love this app!!!! I use it all the time. Nothing else as easy, flexible, creative and comprehensive. And I'm not a kid.

I depend on this app...but now I get notices from Apple saying it will soon no longer work with my new IPad Pro. Please, update! I'd even pay for it. Worth it for me. Great for educators, students, amateur artists and even pros!

Pretty please! Don't want to lose this!

Please update

Hello, I really enjoy this app I use it for school all the time! But please update! It makes me really sad not being able to use it because it hasn’t been updated! It would really make my day if you could make time and start working on that update. Thank you!
