It’s a grand dream of mine to take my boys to New York’s Museum of Modern Art. I spent two blissful kid-free weeks in the Big Apple in 2009 and this museum captured my heart. With a third baby boy recently hatched, my travel dreams are well and truly on hold, but there is a way to get a little MoMa magic in our lives!
It’s the MoMa Art Lab app for iPad – taking your child on an artistic, experimental journey with line, shape and colour and introducing them to the finest modern art on the planet. They can produce their own fine art gallery complete with original modern masterpieces, trawl the MoMa archives for the pieces which speak to them the most and find out fun facts about them.
It has audio for pre-readers and a parent-controlled sharing function so children’s artworks can be shared in a safe way. The MoMa Art Lab app is best on iPad and is $2.99 from the iTunes App Store.
