[prMac.com] Paris, France - Award-winning startup, Edoki Academy today is thrilled to announce the release of Zen Studio 1.0 for iOS, a geometric finger painting app designed to help children relax and focus. What's more, each swipe of a finger produces a soothing music generated by a unique algorithm.
Edoki and Seven Academy, two educational app publishers based in Paris, London and Montreal, announced last month that they were merging to create even more educational digital contents for kids. Zen Studio is their first release under Edoki Academy, their new company name. It is the first app to combine a drawing activity with calming music to enable children from the age of 3 to concentrate.
"At its most basic, meditation gives young children the feeling of being quiet and still. It gives them time to breathe and imagine, and lets them know that it is okay to have feelings. In fact, through meditation children learn that it is okay to be whoever they are and feel whatever they feel." (Source: EOC Institue)
This intuitive drawing tool will allow children to produce an endless number of artistic creations in a supportive environment that encourages self-reflection. Should kids wish to learn how to create their favorite animals and characters, they will love the Tutorial Mode which features 60 guided projects!
Zen Studio was designed with all children in mind. The choice of 3 different grid sizes caters for children with varying levels of fine motor skills. More than a drawing app, it is also an introduction to geometry and symmetry. The triangle-based canvases are an intuitive way for children to realize that if they color 4 triangles they get a square! Also, Edoki Academy's Montessori experts have designed a set of symmetry tutorials, one of which is available in the free version.
A very detailed printable "Parents and Teachers Handbook" includes information on mindfulness, meditation, play, geometry and symmetry. A valuable tool for all parents and teachers!
