My daughter has always loved painting and sketching as ways to express her creativity, but she also delights in sitting down at her computer and writing lines of code to build websites so it makes sense that she’d gravitate towards digital art. If you’re not familiar with digital art, it uses computer technology as part of the creative process.
Digital art helps move beyond using traditional tools like paint, pens, pastels, colored pencils, and charcoal on paper or canvas as means of expression and is being taught in many secondary schools as an art or technology elective. Digital tools that integrate technology with the artistic process to foster creativity, serve as motivators, and enhance cognitive skills such as memory, attention, auditory and visual processing, logic and reasoning, and more. According to LucasMuseum.com, digital art has “revolutionized more traditional art forms like painting, sculpture, and cinema” and serves as “the newest medium artists have discovered in their quest to tell their stories constrained only by the limits of their imagination.”

It’s more natural to use a pen to create digital art than a computer and Wacom’s pressure-sensitive pen is like drawing in real life. The comfortable lightweight design lets you exercise full control with +/- 0.25 accuracy. Wacom’s Creative Pen features provide the ultimate creativity and when you hold it in your hand, you can:
- Create thicker or thinner lines simply by pushing harder on the pen
- Shade heavily without changing the settings
- Edit images and change the opacity in relation to the pressure you put on pen tip
- Swap out felts and flexible nibs (sold separately) that can be stored inside the pen for safe keeping to keep digital drawing tools at your fingertips
The buttons where your fingers comfortably grip the pen make it easy to switch between pencil, oil, watercolor, and chalk so you can fully express yourself through various artistic mediums.
It’s unbelievable to think about how much technology is packed in the sleek digital pen. Electromagnetic technology makes it pressure sensitive, so it can automatically sense your movements to provide a natural drawing experience while you create.
