Feeling guilty about tossing paintings made by a pint-sized Picasso? Apps available on iTunes and Google Play can turn a smartphone into a digital art gallery so Crayon portraits are just a tap away.
Artkive (free). Take a picture of the artwork from your phone, then tag the piece with keywords and build different “sharing circles” to send the art.
KidPix: Save Your Kid’s Art (free). Create separate accounts for all the artistes in your family and add fun digital frames to each masterpiece. Share the creative genius via social media, or mail it as a postcard using the Sincerely app.
Art My Kid Made (free). This app’s photo editing and storage features are very robust and include tagging and worry-free backup by Evernote. Post the creative output to the Art My Kid Made blog where you can give a thumbs up to art created by other young masters.
