Normally you run risks of an average app with simple names like this. Since the Windows Store is still in its infancy, there are a few subpar applications that have been quickly thrown together.

Not this. How To Draw is a well-designed and well thought of application that aims to teach users the very basics of creating simple cartoony art. Kids will love this app the most, with its bright visuals, vibrant interface and easy to follow instructions.

Below lies the official description:

“Finally drawing made simple! See how you can teach your child to draw like a pro. Just listen, follow the instructions and draw on your screen. You may start with a cat as it’s really simple. If it goes well don’t be afraid of the “Pony” episode! Beautifully designed, touch oriented with funny instructions. Cool and addictive, a must have for your child!”

The home screen of this free app offers a variety of choices, from simple ones like a cat and a dog to relatively more advanced creations like a Santa Claus and a space shuttle. Instructions, luckily, are very easy to follow, though a bigger selection of projects would be welcome.

Completely optimized for tablets, the app supports ARM processors as well as x86 and x64. Well worth a download if you want to try out some casual drawing on your Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 device.
