There’s a monster on the loose and it’s destroying everything in its way! Save the day and help Artie to rebuild his world, using a very special magic pencil. In a land where basic shapes are the building blocks, children can be the hero whilst learning how simple triangles, squares and circles come together to create everything they see around them, from a butterfly to a building, and a car to an ice cream shop!

Artie’s Magic Pencil is an interactive learning adventure that teaches children the fundamentals of drawing to inspire them to get creative both on and off the screen! By matching up the dots and tracing the shapes, children will see lines and shapes come to life! With a fun story and delightful handcrafted animations, Artie’s Magic Pencil will help children learn the power of art and of helping others.

Kids can choose to play Artie’s Magic Pencil either by following the storyline through Artie’s world or by tapping the map in the top corner to return to, redraw and customize their favourite objects as many times as they wish.

Editors’ Notes

Doodling gets imaginations going—and this app has ours running wild. That’s one reason we’re so delighted by this adorable introduction to drawing. Tracing simple shapes to fill a storybook world encourages fine motor skills, and we think kids and parents will love sharing the excitement as each doodle comes to life.

So cute!!


Me being older than the age it's made for and still liking it is amazing. Or I'm just weird. XD But I love the focus on shapes! The art work is really cute and it has a tiny plot! I was able to get this free bc it was the free app of the week (which tells you it purty Gud) idk how much it actually is but I think it should be around erm 99 cents

Hi there, and thanks so much for this great review! We're happy to hear that a range of ages enjoy Artie's Magic Pencil!

Excellent introduction to drawing


AMP is a great intro for young kids to the basic concepts of drawing by using different shapes. I’m a graphic designer and was keen for my son to get an early start as an artist, this game uses a story game format to really engage kids while improving their motor skills. His favorite part is drawing the outhouse and the doggie. Another great game from Minilab studios!
