Early Excellence Depends on Education: iOS App Art ABC

Art ABC is an excellent educational app choice for parents searching iTunes for learning tools to enhance children’s early education. The app combines gorgeous artworks with learning the alphabet in an elegantly simple interface designed to be easy for little fingers to navigate with or without their parents’ help.  Art ABC walks kids through the alphabet, but does so in a way that makes learning a process of exploration.

Rather than simply displaying objects whose names are associated with each letter, the objects are “hidden” in details of beautiful paintings by Degas, Renoir, Rousseau and other famous artists. As children use the touch screen to explore this beauty-filled virtual environment, they “discover” the objects. Black and gray apples burst into vibrant color when touched, as the soothing tones of the narrator speak their name and emphasize that it begins with the letter A. Art ABC introduces simple concepts but creates an educational adventure.
