Sketchpad - A Fun, Free, Drawing Tablet

Sketchpad is a free, feature-rich, online drawing tablet that I recently came across in my stumbling around the Internet. Sketchpad offers users the ability to quickly create drawings. Sketchpad doesn't require you to create an account in order to create and save your drawings. All of the drawing tools that you would expect to find like brushes, pencils, and a large range of colors are offered by Sketchpad. Additionally, Sketchpad offers some unique tools for creating patterns, swatches, and blends of colors.

Applications for Education
Sketchpad could be a good little tool for students to use to create drawings for digital storyboards. It might also be a nice way for students to experiment with shading and mixing of colors.
