Sprite Kids today announced that it has released Mini Monet Creative Studio and Art Club for Kids Lite, a comprehensive Creative Studio and Art Club for the iPad. What makes Mini Monet unique are the principles which have guided it’s design and development. It has been designed specifically for kids 6+ years of age and provides them with unbounded creativity.
Imagine giving unbounded creativity to a child, a new creative drawing challenge will pop up in the app every week-end, giving the kids a regular activity to do every week. It is not just an app but a safe creative environment for kids. The weekly drawing challenges are designed specifically for kids aged 6-8 years, in the challenge there are trace lines for the younger kids to inspire creativity, while the older kids are free to add their own creative touches. Mini Monet is the only app for Kids which has Weekly Challenges, kids earn stickers ( designed for the challenge ) when they participate in the challenge. Getting creative has never been this fun!
The Magic Pencil tool that prevents strokes from spilling out of a hand drawn area, making it not only easier and more fun for kids to draw and color, but results in much better artwork. The Magic Pencil is one of the many features in Mini Monet which pay attention to how children draw.
Connecting children through art, the Art Club in Mini Monet is powered by the creations of the little artists. Kids are inspired by the art work of other little artists and can inspire others with their creativity.
Kids earn coins as they use the app, these coins can be used to get more content to draw and color from the Art Store.
Mini Monet has something for every type of artist, for those who like to color there are coloring pages in the app and more are added dynamically, for those who wish to capture their creative ideas on paper there are blank pages to draw on and for those who would like to draw, but cannot think of what to draw, there are Challenges which prompt creativity. Kids earn two new stickers for each challenge they participate in.
Mini Monet has a rich set of drawing tools sophisticated enough to render professional art but easy enough for the kids to use. This introduces a new world of art. Kids can paint with color, glitter or patterns. The app is packed with stamps and stickers, designed for creativity. It let’s kids paint and create their own stickers too!
Each child using the app has their own personal art book to save their art projects and stickers. They can open their old art projects and edit them further. Mini Monet is packed with fun surprises, kids earn coins as they use the app and these could be used to unlock more content in the app.
The Weekly Challenges, Art Club, Magic Pencil and the Art Store make Mini Monet a unique creative app like no other. Furthermore, making art simulates the right hemisphere of the brain. By stimulating and exercising the right hemisphere of the brain, the arts strengthen the connection between the hemispheres, thus helping kids achieve their full potential of the mind.
“Smart devices are ubiquitous, the children of today are growing up with these. Like any parent I want my child to learn through meaningful creative exploration on these devices. Mini Monet does just that, kids are free to doodle, draw & color with state of the art tools and can learn by observing others creations in a safe environment” says Nikita Kapoor, founder of Sprite Kids, and mom to Anya.
