About this app

Get daily inspiration and get your creativity flowing with Sketch a Day! Join 250,000 artists in the best sketching community around!

The idea is simple: every day, we set a new subject for everyone to draw. You do your sketch or drawing, take a photo, and upload it for that day for everyone to see.

You can sketch, draw, paint, use digital art apps. Whatever you like that gets you into the habit of drawing every day.

Submit as many as you like, and see your progress over time.

And with the all-new Learn section, you will find great tutorials from our wonderful community of talented artists. Want to learn watercolours? Craving crafty ideas? Need to practise drawing people? Then the Learn section is perfect for you.

Lots of people are using Sketch a Day as a great way to start a positive habit. I have had many messages of support about the effect it has had on people's mental health, wellness and mindfulness. Sketching is a great habit to get into, even if like so many people, you think you "can't draw". It's a very peaceful, quiet and creative pastime, and receiving the help and support of others is a great way to feel good about yourself.

Sketch a Day is a wonderful, positive community with people from all over the world coming together to draw a common theme. If you need ideas for drawing, inspiration, encouragement or just want to look at amazing art, Sketch a Day is the right app for you.

If you've ever participated in Inktober, this app is like that - but forever - and you have a place to share your work and enjoy others.

** Sketch a Day is growing fast **

There are over 300,000 artists in the community now. It's just growing faster and faster all the time!

If you want to learn, want to get back into drawing, or just want a quick practice or warm-up, then Sketch a Day could be perfect for you. For beginners, we have tips and tutorials each day. For the experts, you can post your images and show your skills to the world.


So...go sharpen your pencils!

Did you know?

• By drawing each day and getting likes, you can build your own private gallery of famous masterpieces.
• Parental controls make Sketch a Day a safer place. You can prevent 'adult material' from being seen by your children by setting a PIN on the parental controls.
• You can comment on people's sketches so you can ask how they did it, ask for tips, give them some kudos or just be silly!
• You can also add your Instagram account name so people can follow you on Instagram quickly and easily.
• When you've done a drawing, you can share it on Facebook straight from the app.

We have had some really creative drawings in our first few months. We've had pencils, watercolours, digital drawing, pen and ink, acrylics. We've had kids, adults, beginners, improvers and experts!

I would like to use this space to say thank you to all the people who have messaged me to tell me how Sketch a Day has made their lives better. Drawing every day really seems to have a huge positive effect on people's lives.

Like the challenges. This helping me to relax and improve on my skills. Some of the prompts are a big challenge but well worth the time and effort. Right now I'm having a problem seeing the weekly prompts. Not sure why. Got that problem figured out. I still like the challenges and some of them make me think and I have been learning some interesting stuff. Yeah!!

Pretty great app! I've made some good art using this. If you're someone that draws for other people then this might inspire you. Some of the prompts are a little out there, but you can view the weeks list of prompts to see what you like. They're not super pushy about you uploading a prompt every day. There is a wide skill range and almost everyone gets at least a few likes when they post.

Awesome app.. glad I downloaded this, never really drew at all until I downloaded this app. Now I draw everyday, also you can really pick up alot of skills and different ways to draw by looking at other peoples sketches. So far no problems with the app. I think it would be cool maybe on a weekend you give us 3 things to vote on to sketch so we could do a sketch like that. Just to change it up some but so far awesome work
