Software Review:    JumpStart Artist

All children are artists, and this exciting product helps kids ages 5-8 explore their creativity, as well as art history, culture, and styles. Though children 7 and up may find the JumpStart characters too "childish", kids 5-6 will love the theme. What sets this title apart from other creativity programs is its introduction of art education fundamentals. In addition to the exciting freeform art tool box, it offers some structured activities. Kids can apply their newfound skills away from the computer with the programís printable activities. Diverse facts are acquired. For example, children compare and contrast the camouflaged patterns on a moth and the bright and bold patterns of a poison arrow frog. Thereís a refreshing breadth to the program that will please both parents and children in equal measure. 

 
Pros:
  • Represents great value
  • A nice mix of freeform and structured activities
 

 

Cons:
  • Some kids will find the program too cute
  • Program dialogue is sometimes annoying
