LITTLE ARTISTS

The immersive exploration of  art masterpieces stimulates children’s imagination and encourages their creative intuition. Creativity generates creativity.

Transforming the cold-looking digital medium in a tool full of poetry, to accompany Digital Natives in magic interactive immersions in the world of art.
Lapisly, art appbooks created with art.

Art and creativity for children

 

We are a Digital Publishing House, specialized in the creation of art appbooks for children.

We explore the didactical potential of new technologies to provide Digital Natives with a new learning experience, an innovative way to learn about art history and to stimulate their creativity, through the direct interaction with art pieces.

Handcraft approach across old media and new media

 

We adopt a handcraft approach, merging the use of digital technologies with the warm feeling of the manual sign of traditional illustration, old fashioned animation, original storytelling and acoustic music.

We aim at  creating a magic experience through the poetry of the art pieces to encourage imagination and creativity.

Museums and didactical experience enhancement

 

Our app design can enhance the experience of visitors of museums and expositions, through the implementation of site-specific interactivities and augmented reality features that can deliver an enriched experience to the whole family. Group didactical experience in schools and education environments can also be enhanced through the support of our app design, to promote collaborative creativity and to convey art-specific didactical content.
