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.

Don't spend ANY money

This was such a great free app, so I thought I would buy one of the drawing packs. I spent £5.99 on the faces pack, which is expensive compared to most other app content, and I was hugely disappointed. There were only 3 lessons, focused on different parts of the face, rather than different types of faces. This wasn't what the in-app advertising led me to believe.

Enjoy the free app, it's great, but NEVER be tricked in to spending any money on the disappointing extra content. It's a total con.

Really Good

Nice little app, shame so much has to be purchased or it would have got five stars. It would be better to allow people to sample on trial lesson from each category....however the lessons are very clear, helpful & a nice introduction to drawing on the IPad or just to refreshing skills you haven't used for years. Thanks very much for encouraging me to go back & pick up those pencils & brushes again. Nice to be able to review techniques on the go when I feel like doodling too.

You cannot be serious!

This app does not work in either iOS 5 or iOS 6. How did this get approved by Apple? On iOS 6 it crashes, on iOS 5 you can't download any lessons.

You do not get a single lesson that shows how this app would work - you need to buy something to see the step by step instructions. Sadly that's not possible - so this app its current state isn't working.

If you're forcing people to spend money to test the app, why make it free in the first place? What a waste of time, MEDL! You're ruining the reputation of a good instructor here.

Highly un-recommended!
