ShadowDraw App

A few months ago I saw the coolest thing on social media: an app that teaches the user how to draw simple drawings by tracing the lines drawn by an artist.

The app is called “ShadowDraw – Learn How to Draw, a free app with in-app purchases. I was mesmerized.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when I received an email from Marty McDonough, the creator of the app,  asking if I would like to be a featured artist. I was super excited to contribute to this unique teaching resource so I submitted some Winter Holiday sketchnoting icons. Well, today my first drawing bundle is ready to purchase!

Instructions:

  1. In the iTunes store, download the ShadowDraw app (for iPads only).
  2. Do the opening tutorial.
  3. Tap Menu
  4. Browse tutorials
  5. Tap on “Sketchnoting for the Holidays/ Sylvia Duckworth”
  6. “Get book for $1.99USD/$2.79CAD” to learn how to draw 25 different holiday icons.
  7. On the right, tap on the icon you want to learn how to draw > Start drawing!

If you like my lessons, check out the other lessons by featured artists including Graham Shaw (yes, THAT Graham Shaw from the popular YouTube video with 23 million views)! You can read about the other artists here who have all contributed to this wonderful app with Holiday-themed drawings and more.

Have fun learning how to draw with the ShadowDraw app!
