We received their Crayola Art Studio cd-rom to review. This software is a wonderful program that enables children to not only create art, but to also create invitations, greeting cards, decorations and so much more! It is adaptable for all kids regardless of their computer knowledge.
My kids had such a blast using this program, especially my 4yo. She was able to use the pre-set "paint" colors or create her own colors. She loved the ability to change the backgrounds, add stamps (to which there are a large variety to choose from), change art tools (they have paint brushes, markers, colored pencils and more), and just use her imagination. The creative possibilities really are endless with this art program.
Here are some other features to this program:
- 12 realistic art tools including tempera paint, acrylic paint, watercolor, chalk, crayon, oil pastel, colored pencil, marker and more
- Customize the interface with selections of backgrounds, icon sizes and tool configurations
- A special Begin to Draw level helps beginners learn basic computer drawing skills
- The best drawing and painting program for children at a great price: $24.95
They also have screen shots, free demos to download and a tour of the program.
