App Partner facilitates launch of educational iPad app

Thursday, August 28, 2014

App Partner, a Brooklyn-based mobile application developer, has completed the iOS programming for a just-launched app, NGAkids Art Zone for iPad. The app was produced in collaboration with Al Jarnow of Protozone, Inc. and Donna Mann of the National Gallery of Art, Washington.

“We are thrilled to have worked with the National Gallery of Art and Protozone to develop the NGAkids Art Zone app,” said Drew Johnson, co-CEO and founder, App Partner. “At App Partner, we are big believers in working with clients to develop ‘apps for good.’ This educational iOS app for iPad is a perfect example of how mobile apps can be used for such an end – and enables children of all ages to become familiar with major works of art while also encouraging their own artistic self-expression in an intuitive, child-friendly, easy-to-navigate interface.”

Now available on the App Store, the NGAkids Art Zone app is optimized for children between the ages of nine and eleven, but it’s fun for kids of all ages. The app contains eight interactive activities inspired by works in the collection of the National Gallery of Art, plus a sketchbook for freehand drawing and a personal exhibition space where users can save and display art created with the program.

High-resolution graphics, careful attention to detail and exposure to a variety of subjects, painting styles and techniques help convey an authentic understanding of the artistic process and reinforce their familiarity with the fundamental elements of art. Unexpected animation and audio features further enliven the program and help make learning fun.
