Walter Foster has been the leading publisher of quality art instruction guides for more than 85 years. Their instructional volumes, guidebooks and art kits have trained artists of all ages and skill levels in pencil drawing, acrylic painting, watercolors, pastels, land-scape rendering, figure drawing and much more.

Walter Foster and the artists of MEDL Mobile have put their minds together to bring you the Walter Foster iPad app—the latest addition to a vast collection of art instruction guides.


Welcome to the world of the Walter Foster iPad app. Learn to create stunning digital renderings of virtually anything with easy-to-follow, step-by-step art instruction guides.


Artists of every age and skill level have been using Walter Foster’s world-class art instruction for almost a century, and the Walter Foster iPad app is the latest addition for the newest generation. This app comes standard with four drawing lessons to get you started, and comes equipped with a full kit of tools to render stunning masterpieces right on your iPad.

Each drawing tool is pre-adjusted to closely resemble its real-world counterpart, and you can modify aspects of each tool to suit your preference. You can pause at any point throughout your lesson, and pick up right where you left off. Create as many drawings as you want, or bring up a blank slate for freehand drawing.

You can purchase new lessons right from within the app and share your finalized renderings via E-mail, Facebook, Twitter and many others. Augment your drawings with different paper style backgrounds to give them a unique feel, and even personalize your lessons by switching on voice instructions.

Not very practical

This app is well made for its purposes but not very practical for the user. It would be better to teach how to draw on iPad, specifically what settings to use, not so much how to draw traditionally. That would be more useful. It is difficult to make the realistic drawings look right on iPad. Also I would like the option to pay one time for this app, not for each book.

Hard if you’re trying to learn

I recommend this app for artists with experience but if you’re a beginner I would suggest getting a different app OR buy a book about sketch art

Impossible to achieve drawings like the examples without apple pencil support

Without proper pressure sensibility it is impossible to achieve gesture lines like the examples provided. So probably people will feel frustrated for not achieving good drawings even though they do it as the lesson intended. Beside this deal breaker, app is well done and lessons are well adapted for this format. Advice, get the old books if you can, grab some paper and pencil, start drawing and skip this app.
