AASL Recommended App: Touch Van Gogh

touch_vangoghThe American Association of School Librarians (AASL) came out with their 25 Best Apps for Teaching & Learning. The apps were chosen because they foster innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration.

The Touch Van Gogh app reveals the secrets in and behind the paint on Vincent van Gogh’s canvases. While exploring “the location, history, style and composition of the paintings, students will enjoy rubbing the screen to reveal art hidden under some of the paintings as they discover that Van Gogh recycled his canvases.” AASL recommends using this app for art classes studying composition, color, style, media and Van Gogh’s works.

This award-winning app is FREE for iOS devices and on Google Play. AASL recommends it for Upper Elementary, Middle, and High School students.
