53 Art Education Apps for Ipads

♠ Posted by ArtMuse in at 5:35 PM
According to some research I've been doing, the itunes app store has over 63,000 downloadable apps...and although they are not all art related, with so many choices, fishing for not just art apps, but quality educational ones can be an impossible task.  So instead of spending your summers 'fishing' here's a few apps to get you started:

Here's a list of art education apps I've gotten from IEAR, I.e.a.r. is short for i-education apps review: a website dedicated to using apps in an educational way. I've also posted some from The Teaching Palette (her blog: ) All the apps listed art education related, so if you have the chance check them out, and even better than that, if you have access to ipads for your classroom, have your students check them out!
If you follow the link you will come to the site which has a full description for each app.  Some entries even have video or website links for that gives ideas or examples of their uses in classrooms.
