Have you ever felt guilty for throwing out your child’s colorful artwork? Have a macaroni heart mother’s day card that you may want to preserve and share with other members of your family? The ArtKive app provides parents and other family members with a great way to preserve those kiddie creations.
When your son, daughter, niece, nephew, or grandchild comes home with his or her first finger paint, you do not need to worry about letting it piling on your fridge with ArtKive. Simply take a picture of the work of art, select the child, grade of the child, and date created from a pull down menus, then input the title of the piece before clicking the artkive button to store it.
Signing-up for ArtKive is fast and simple, requiring your name and email address.
After creating the account, the name of your children can be added. You can add as many children as you want.
There is also the option to add contacts to a shared circle that will allow you to share artwork with close friends and family. There are no limits with regards to how many people can be added to these circles.
Some may ask, besides allowing parents to take photos of their kids’ arts what’ exactly is the cool factor of this app? Well, the key to this app is organization. Think of how many children get their paintings or drawings thrown out by their parents everyday. ArtKive allows parents to declutter their home and keep their kids happy. It also keep childhood memories alive.
Let’s be honest, few parents keep their children’s drawings two or three years after the fact. ArtKive not only allows you to do keep long lasting memories, but it also gives you the liberty to print out the photo of the paintings at any point in time which opens the door for T-Shirts, mugs, and other accessories inspired by your little Picasso or little Frida.
If you want to get creative, you don’t have to simply use ArtKive to keep photos of only your children’s art. Perhaps users can use the app to take snapshots with their children and other family members and use the share feature of the app to share these photos only with those closest to the family. Like any app that allows users to integrate captured photographs, the only limit is imagination.
ArtKive is a very nifty app that provides a personal experience for parents who want to treasure their children’s achievements or artwork. But, it can also be useful for those who are looking for a personal way to share memories with close friends or family without the bothersome eye of social media.
