iLuv Drawing Animals – A very nice step by step drawing learning app with visual/audio prompts

Penguin (2)
iLuv Drawing Animals - Learn to draw 40 animalsQuick Notes: iLuv Drawing Animals is a learning app that teaches kids (and adults like me).  It has simple step by step voice directions  and visual prompts.  This is self-explanatory and is good for any kid learning to draw.  There are plenty of pictures to draw. If your kid gets tired of this they can move to the free-format drawing but they can add variety of backgrounds if they like. Finally they can use this blank template to draw whatever they want as there several colors/line sizes available to create whatever they can imagine.

IEP Goals Covered: Art, Following visual directions, Fine Motor

Issues
  • The verbal instructions are too many.  We basically turned it off as it was not really necessary for the drawing as the visual prompts are more than enough. For kids with auditory processing issues this is a distraction. Just turn off the volume.
  • Minor issue but the order of icons in the main page are of same size and is confusing where to start.
Wish list
  • The blank template is at the end and for someone who wants to use it you have to click 3-4 time the next button. It should be easy to access for kids who need it.
  • Currently there is no Fill option for coloring. It is nice to have a fill so it is easy to color.
Overall Impression - Very nice app as it even allowed me to draw a meaningful picture as you can see below.  The price is awesome. It is only $0.99 and it is a lot less than you pay for a sketch book and you will save tons of paper.

    Thank you for covering ‘iLuv Drawing Animals’ on techinspecialed.com. :) I saw your wish list. I wanted to point out that color fill option is currently available. Select a color and then select bucket from the brush pallet, and thats how you get your color fill option. i.e. fill the color into closed spaces with just a touch.
