The National Gallery of Australia is celebrating the release of its iOS mobile application, Eye See ART.
Eye See ART is a free interactive art adventure game for 5-10 year olds and is designed as an onsite activity for kids to do individually or in collaboration with friends or family.
‘The Eye See ART app is part of our commitment to develop a range of fun programs that engage with new technologies for increasing enjoyment of art.’ said Simon Elliott, Assistant Director, Curatorial and Educational Services.
The Eye See ART app utilises location-awareness technology to provide an interactive experience. Children explore the Sculpture Garden using a map to locate and identify works of art. Along the way, children are encouraged to observe and learn about the sculptures through a series of clues and questions. Each work of art identified unlocks hidden content about the artist or the sculpture, including photo galleries and other related works held in the National Gallery’s permanent collection.
Eye See ART is available through the Apple App Store for beacon-enabled iPhones (iPhone 4S or later) and iPod touches (5th generation or later). The mobile app will complement the family and community programs already offered throughout the year by the National Gallery of Australia.
