Client: Sesame Workshop

Following from the success of Elmo’s Art Maker over on the Sesame Street website, we’re delighted to announce the launch of Sesame Street Art Maker for iOS! This app expands on the HTML5 art tools we created last year, and boasts 24 canvases and over 100 tools. Paint a Monsterpiece using oil paints, use a magic wand to scatter stars across the sky, fire goo out of a cannon or release a whoopee cushion full of paint onto the canvas – all in the name of art!

Entering the app for the first time, the artist is greeted by Elmo and Cookie Monster in the gallery before being prompted to choose a picture frame to be the canvas for their artwork. Each frame contains a different selection of tools to use, and each of these is themed around a different muppet, holiday or setting. It’s then a simple matter of tapping, swiping, dragging and getting creative in just about every way the touchscreen will allow to create a marvellous work of art! After the final touches have been applied to the artwork, the artist returns to the gallery to receive the carefully honed criticisms of the Cookie Monster, who has great taste in both art and cookies. The completed artwork is hung in the gallery for the artist to enjoy, or to return to later.

There is such a huge variety of tools in this game that there are literally hours of fun to be had. We know from experience that there is nothing more daunting to a child than a plain blank canvas, so the app contains weekly challenges set by Elmo himself, to spark their imagination and creativity. As if that weren’t enough, there are also an additional six ‘monsterpeice’ canvases to unlock, containing Sesame takes on classic works of art. Parodies of Van Gogh, Pollock, Warhol and more make this app our largest and perhaps our funniest art tool to date! The app contains art tools and canvases themed in the style of all your favourite muppets. As well as Elmo and Cookie Monster there is Abi, Big Bird, The Count, The Martians, Oscar, Grover… the list goes on! You can download the app from the iOS App Store.
