Now, there's an app for that, cleverly called ArtKive. ArtKive accomplishes several things. First, it allows you to take a photo of the artwork and archive it electronically for posterity.
Second, you can share those electronic images with friends and family, regardless of distance. Grandparents, cousins, etc. can all have access to your petite Picasso's pieces.
Finally, and this is where ArtKive hopes to make money, since the app is free, you can order physical goods like mugs or photo books.
It's a neat idea, and if your kid ends up being a real artist, you'll have some great mementos. Regardless, they might avoid some repressed memories of you throwing out their creations! Try the free app today at ArtKiveApp.com.
