PlayART by Tapook
Students choose from eight artists: Hokusai, Cézanne, Monet, Rousseau, Van Gogh, Klimt, Klee, and Modigliani. After selecting an artist, they can choose a background from one of the artist's iconic works and then add in specific elements and details -- birds, flowers, or moons, for example -- from a selection of the artist's oeuvre. Art teachers can use PlayART with students after completing units on any of the artists included or after any lesson on masterpieces. For a more general art appreciation unit, kids can remix classics from various artists at once. The unique works can be saved to the museum, where some of the artists' original compositions are also included as suggestions.
