Getting creative with the iPad

Whilst one BBC news story informed us that a Warwick University report says that arts and creativity has been squeezed out of schools, another reported on the iPad artwork exhibition in Yorkshire by David Hockney.

How are you using iPads in your school to let pupils explore their creativity?  The free Brushes app for the iPad seems to be a popular tool for artists including Hockney and some of the iPad artwork done by Kyle Lambert using Brushes is just amazing!  The MoMA  Art Lab is a lovely app for younger pupils to experiment and explore their creativity with ideas and prompts to kick start their thinking!

Which art apps do you use with your pupils to inspire their creativity?
