Crayola Art Studio from Core Learning

As a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to review many homeschool products over the next several months. I feel truly blessed to be participating in this review group and I'm looking forward to trying out the products and giving you my honest opinion.

We have had so much fun playing with our new Crayola Art Studio Software from Core Learning. It reminds me a lot of the traditional Paint program, but so...much...better!

We have five little budding artists around here (Baby L isn't quite big enough to hold a crayon yet). All day long I have someone presenting another masterpiece and announcing, "I made this for you, Mommy!" I have piles and piles of artwork and if I want to, um...'file away'...any of it, I need to do it in the middle of the night when no little eyes are watching. But with our Crayola Art Studio, the kids can create and paper laying around!

The program really is easy to use. Even my three year old can use it! There are tons of "stamps" to choose from to create a background or add images into your artwork. Plus you can create your own images using one of the twelve realistic art brushes (crayons, markers, watercolors, acrylics, pastels, chalk, and more). You can mix your own colors or create symmetrical pictures using a cool symmetry tool.

You can purchase Crayola Art Studio from Core Learning for $24.95. Core Learning also offers software programs for math, language arts, health and more. I'm particularly interested in purchasing Creativity Express. You'll find screen shots and demos of their products on their website.

Here are some of my kids' Crayola far.

E5 titled this one "Sleepy Sleep". (I love the names they come up with as much as the pictures.)

"Mean" by G8...see the peeping tom in the window?

A6 created "Happy Princess".
