Sketch Studio is an easy to use drawing program for children. Sketch Studio is unique in that it contains built-in drawing lessons. The lessons feature two animated characters Sketch and Smudge. The characters work together, sketching and smudging, to draw pictures in steps. At the end of each step the two characters wait, allowing the user to copy what was drawn, before proceeding to the next step.

The lessons range from beginner to advanced. The simplest lesson consists of colouring in the outline of a tree frog. This lesson, although simple, demonstrates how to use the powerful smudging technique that is necessary in the more advanced drawings. The goal is to slowly build up the drawing ability and confidence of the user.

Every drawing created with Sketch Studio is recorded and can be replayed, by Sketch and Smudge, within Sketch Studio. When a child has completed a drawing he/she can press the Play button and Sketch and Smudge will recreate the drawing stroke for stroke. The drawings can also be replayed with the Sketch and Smudge Screen Saver that is included with Sketch Studio.

Sketch Studio Features:

  • Sketch Studio works with a mouse or a pressure sensitive pen and tablet.
  • When you install Sketch Studio 14 drawing lessons are also installed.
  • You can create colouring pages like those found in a child's colouring book. One way is to use clipart images found on the internet. You simply download the images and then select them as the background for your drawing.
  • Use photos and images (.jpg, .bmp, .gif...) as "trace images". You'll be able to quickly trace the images in order to help you draw a picture.
  • You can save your finished drawings in standard image formats (.jpg, .bmp...).
