Art Lessons

Learn to Draw iPad App

I'm a huge fan of having apps on my iPad that I can turn to whenever I find myself with a few free minutes—in an unexpectedly long line at the post office, waiting for an appointment, early to meet a friend for dinner. As an artist, two of my go-to apps are Walter Foster's Learn to Draw and Kids! Learn to Draw.

There are a few step-by-step drawing lessons that come with the free apps, and additional lesson packs are available for purchase in-app for $2.99-$6.99.

My personal favorite of the lessons is the pineapple in the Learn to Draw "Everyday Objects" lesson pack...but I'm a little pineapple obsessed.

Here is my first attempt from months ago:

And this little guy is from the "Sea Creatures" lesson pack in the kids version of the app:

They are great apps to have on hand whenever you have a little extra time and feel like entertaining the artistic side of your brain—plus they're free! My favorite part is that I can save my drawing as an image and even post to Facebook or email from the app.

Give it a try! The apps are both available in the iTunes store. 

What do you think of drawing on your tablet/iPad?
