Using ArtRage with Ages 5-18

ArtRage is very popular with children as you can see from our experience at a local New Zealand convention (the stall was covered in children the entire time)

ArtRage is a very accessible and easy to learn art program. It’s also a lot of fun, so children and young adults will enjoy experimenting with it.

ArtRage replaces the need for a large stock of traditional media, and it completely avoids paint all over the tablet or crayon on the carpet. If you’re a parent or a teacher, you probably know just how much mess a child can make far too well.

Kids generally enjoy the Glitter, Gloop pen, Sticker Spray tools, Stencils and tracing features, as well as the ability to mix up and erase paint. The best way to get the started is just to point out the Oil brush, get them to pick a colour, then get them to mix in another colour – they can usually take it from there!

ArtRage Intel For Education

ArtRage is recommended by Intel’s Education program, which also suggests some example lesson plans that incorporate ArtRage in Math, Art and Science.

Some other fantastic projects we’ve seen from schools include:

  • Normal art lessons, using digital art to expand skills, or replace the need to provide physical media
  • Video animation (draw in ArtRage, animate elsewhere)
  • Basic familiarisation with technology using a fun, non-threatening interface
  • Group art projects (it’s much easier to share and edit digital files)
