Peel Productions Announces the 1-2-3 DRAW Drawing Instruction App for iPad
March 03, 2011
Peel Productions, a leading publisher of children's how-to-draw books (over 12 million sold) announces the1-2-3 Draw drawing instruction app for iPad - complicated enough to engage children for hours, yet simple enough for adults to use!
The1-2-3 Draw app pairs a clean but powerful user interface with step-by-step lessons from cartoonist Steve Barr and illustrator Freddie Levin, authors of the popular1-2-3 Draw book series. A Free Draw Zone provides artists a blank canvas for their own creations. Finished drawings can be emailed or posted to Facebook.
Multiple users: for the benefit of parents and teachers (or individuals who want to let friends use it),1-2-3 Draw allows for creation of individual artist accounts via the Supervisor Zone. The supervisor can allow artists to log themselves in (good for parents) or require the supervisor to switch accounts (good for a classroom setting). When an artist has completed a series of drawings, he or she earns a reward badge that appears on login. The supervisor can decide whether rewards require supervisor approval.
Additional lessons are available through in-app purchase (only available to the supervisor when Supervisor Mode is enabled). In addition, free tips and lessons are posted through the app blog at 123drawapp.com.
