At Flockdraw, you can:

Paint a simple masterpiece. Make a point visually. Do whatever you want. Do it together. Grab a tool. Pick a color. Draw something. Show a friend. Show the world. Share your vision.

What's Flockdraw? It's an online art editor I discovered recently. You can sign in with Twitter, or simply pick any user name.

It works very easily and intuitively. There's a panel on the right side that you navigate to choose colour, brush size, line tool, fill tool, text, brush tool and eraser. Paint goes on smoothly, making it easy to enjoy the swirl and flow. Use the arrows to change tools, colours etc.

You can embed what you create, or save it to your own computer as a png file.

This is definitely one of the slickest art editors I have used. Kids might like to draw characters and scenes for their digital stories here, or simply have fun experimenting with shapes, spots and vibrant colour the way I did.

Some other web spaces I like where you can create art are CrayolaOdosketch, Bomomo, Mutapic, Brushster and Harmony. You might also like to explore Live Brush which is a free download, or Scrap Coloring, for some very cool pattern making.


  1. Online drawing platforms are always a favorite of my students. They really enjoy letting their creativity bloom on screen, even better when they can share it with friends and family!

    The sharing aspect is such a big feature of these online tools, isn't it. I'm thrilled to hear your students are getting so much from them.

  3. I created a modified version of FlockDraw with many more features including a full color wheel, averaging eyedropper tool, and more. Check it out at :)
