There are several drawing apps available for students. This one has a place in the market because it features 36 objects to draw that are simultaneously unique, yet familiar – such as a strawberry, hot dog, and a piece of cake!
After selecting an object, the student can turn ‘Trace Mode’ on or off. When on, the final object appears as a watermark on the screen. The student can still follow the steps (around 7) to draw each object. Of course the app is more challenging when trace mode is off. All of the tools (pencil, eraser, paint, etc.) needed for each step automatically appear on the screen. But all tools also remain easily accessible throughout the steps. The background ‘paper’ for each drawing can also be changed.
What this app lacks in academic content, it makes up for in creativity! It is a fun and simple app and can serve as a welcome break from more rigorous work. To begin, students draw a stick man. He (or she) can be as simple or as complex as they’d like. From there, the app acts out an adventure and occasionally pauses to have students draw props for the stick figure and other additions to the scene.
There are no points to be earned and no levels to pass. The app just provides a simple way to express creativity and imagination!
