AutoDraw is a drawing tool that determines what you are drawing and offers image enhancement suggestions from a library of simple illustrations. With AutoDraw you can quickly create a polished-looking visual from rough sketches.
Created by Google Creative Lab and hosted in the Chrome Experiments collection, AutoDraw is web-based and can be used from any modern computer web browser, Chromebook, phone or tablet.
Students can use AutoDraw to illustrate a story or create a diagram. There are some additional built-in features to add color and detail to your selected drawings. When your drawing is complete, there are options to download it, email it, or get a unique URL for it that can be shared.
Give it a try! It’s lots of fun.
