Drawing and diagramming has become easier with the iPAD's larger screen. Collaborative mind mapping apps are starting to pop up in the app store. These apps can connect either by WiFi or Bluetooth. If the app connects via Bluetooth, only four iPADs can connect together at one time. Drawing programs can range from annotating on a blank canvas to drawing on top of images in the Photos app.

Below are two videos that demo drawing apps. The first video is a demonstration of Painting. The second video is a demonstration of Adobe ideas.

Artrage
Express your artistic side with easy to use painting and drawing tools that work just like the real thing! ArtRage takes the award winning technology of the desktop version and packages it into a creative experience tailor-made for your iPad. Explore a powerful and intuitive painting simulation that lets users of all levels work with a wide range of natural painting and sketching tools.

ArtRage keeps track of how much paint is on your canvas, so you can blend colors under the brush as you paint, or lay down thick lines of pigment for flattening and smearing with the Palette Knife. Watercolors react to the wetness of the brush and paper beneath, creating hard edged wet strokes or blending to create soft gradients. Canvas grain affects the look of your strokes, and drier pigments break up on the surface to create textured effects.

By taking care of the complex properties of the tools for you, ArtRage lets you get right down to expressing yourself without needing to learn settings or image processing techniques.

Add Layers to your painting to work on individual elements without damaging others. ArtRage supports a wide range of industry standard Blend Modes and lets you manipulate objects on each layer, scaling moving and rotating them.

sgraffito.jpg
Sgraffito
Sgraffito is an artistic technique that is traditionally applied to ceramics and plaster. Sgraffito usually involves scratching off a layer of paint on the ceramics or painting, revealing the colour.

This technique is the same as used by children in school, typically with oil based pastel and black paint. To anyone who has done this, Sgraffito replicates a similar experience.
The app allows for RGB colour selection and preview, and variable brush width. These settings are easily changed by tapping the bottom right-hand corner once.

Shake to undo, or use the Clear Canvas button in the preferences page. Black and White colour presets are also provided, and textures are also available. A texture can be loaded with the its corresponding preview button, and when in use, sits behind the black screen to be 'scratched' away.

To save your drawing to the camera roll, just tap the camera export icon in the lower left corner of the canvas. (icons are not included in the screenshot.)

Sgraffito has loads of cool features, some include:
- Texture drawing

**Sketch**
A sketch (ultimately from Greek σχέδιος - schedios, "done extempore") is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not intended as a finished work. A sketch may serve a number of purpose: it might record something that the artist sees, it might record or develop an idea for later use or it might be used as a quick way of graphically demonstrating an image, idea or principal. Sketching is generally a prescribed part of the studies of art students.
