APP # 4: ColorSchemer

This app allows students to experiment with the colour wheel by manipulating colour harmonies and relationships.

As well, students can share their palette creations with other ColorSchemer users.

This is a free, accessible tool that can aid in an individual's understanding of colour theory.

APP # 5: Musee du Louvre HD

Although this app does have a small cost, it is a great resource for teachers to use in class. This app can expand the knowledge of students regarding historically influential artwork that is displayed in the Louvre Museum in Paris.


Pictures of the artwork are displayed in high resolution and include comments of art critics and museum experts.


As well, students can refer to this app if they need to make reference to past artwork to develop and support their own project ideas.
