 Taking Art to the Next LevelDisney Creativity Studio 

Your kids sometimes get to a point where they are ready to do more than crafty DIY art projects. The Disney Creative Studio App with Smart Stylus will let them build on their artistic talents by turning your iPad tablet into an artist’s studio. My son has always been interested in cartooning, so this was right up his alley. Kids are taught about the drawing process and with the Smart Stylus, they have the tools to mimic what they’re seeing. He was guided step-by-step through the drawing of Mickey, Donald, and Goofy just the way the Disney artists do it!  There’s even a video you can watch that introduces the basic drawing concepts and techniques. Taking Art to the Next Level He was busy for hours.

With the stylus, you get a complete toolbox to create a realistic drawing experience. My son could switch between different types of drawing tools: pencils, stamper, marker, and crayon as well as five different line thickness choices. There’s a wide variety of colors to choose from, and you can get magical effects when you shake the stylus. My son’s favorite part was, he could flip over the stylus to erase just like a regular pencil! Kids can also do dot-to-dot pictures, coloring, and tracing, which my 2 year old daughter enjoyed, when she could wrest the iPad away from my son. The stylus itself costs $50 and can be purchased via the Apple Store and the app costs $3 via the iTunes App Store.
