Crayola brings art to life on the IWB

Posted by rosiemacalpine on September 11, 2009

I was very excited to discover this beautiful online drawing and painting site from Crayola. Unlike a lot of online drawing sites, the tools look realistic. Crayons make a waxy line on the page, and paint strokes can be built up to create a darker line.


The Crayola wheel lets you choose from nine different drawing tools. Each tool has colour and line thickness options.

I also loved this site because it reinforces, rather than tries to replace, traditional art tools. After a few minutes on the site, I was itching to buy some glitter crayons and nice white paper to recreate childhood memories!

You can print your artwork – I would also suggest teaching your students to use the camera/ capture tool that comes with your IWB software to take a screenshot of their work. Then you can create a gallery of student’s art work in your class.
