Drawing Pad is a virtual art studio for kids of all ages

     Drawing Pad is a beautifully designed app for the Ipad which gives young artists everything they need to express themselves creatively. Available on the App Store for $1.99, Drawing Pad is a virtual art studio with all the tools without the mess. 

     All of the supplies that children need are available in virtual  desk drawers, including paint brushes, colored pencils, crayons, markers, roller pens, colored papers, stickers and erasers. 

     The finished works of art can be shared in a variety of ways once completed. They can be saved to the Drawing Pad album, exported to Iphoto, shared via Twitter or Facebook, Emailed or printed. 

     I think that the Drawing Pad app is a must for the preschool and early elementary school classroom. $1.99 gets students engaged in art and you get to avoid the clean up. Not a bad deal for any teacher or parent.
