Get daily inspiration and get your creativity flowing with Sketch a Day!

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.

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.

** Sketch a Day is growing fast **
There are over 20,000 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.

Revisiting Liked Sketches and Editing Your Post?

I love this app! Most of the time when I want to draw, I’m not sure what to draw, or I’m stuck drawing the same old stuff I always do. This app helps me to think outside of my normal creative box and I feel like I have improved a lot as an artist! Or at least I’ve uncovered some talents I didn’t realize I had. Both of which, I think is great!!!

The only two things I would really like to see added to this app is 1): A way to view the art you’ve liked from other people. I find that I wish I could go back and look at art I’ve liked, but there’s not really an easy way to do that unless I happened to favorite the artist.
And 2): A way to edit a post without having to delete it and do it over. Sometimes after I’ve posted, and it has been liked and/or commented on, I realize that I spelled something wrong in the description, but I can’t fix it unless I want to start over.
If either of these things (or both), could be added to the app I know me and at least a few other people would love it!

Thank you for reading this and for the app! 👍

Best game ever

It is a really awesome app to share and see other people’s drawing!You can even like and comment on people posts you can talk to people in the comments and it’s really fun but a disclaimer if you copy some please do say that you copies them is not fair to copy someone and claim it as your own not only is it unfair rude and a jerky move it’s also illegal so please do get the app and be honest (I got the copyright thing from the producer of the game) Thank have a beautiful and wonderful rest of your day or night

Wish it had a bit more.

Overall, I love this app. I sometimes find it hard to think of something to sketch. With this app, each day a topic is given for you to use your imagination and create a sketch. It gets you thinking of things to draw that you never would have thought of yourself.
Once you’re done with your sketch, you can post it. You’re able to see other users sketches and you can “like” them.
I just wish it had a little bit more to the app. Maybe some sketching tips or some more options. It would be nice to be able to add a caption to your sketch, as well.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review! I am working on it this weekend so I will add the ability to put a caption on your sketch when you submit it :)

You’re right, it is quite basic at the moment, so I want to make it better over time! Hopefully things like weekly challenges, getting people to give tips, etc. For now I just want to get people using it!
