Why we built DrawQuest
Deep down, we're all creative people. Unfortunately, as Sir Ken Robinson warns us, society is "educating people out of their creativity." In school, we're led to believe that creative pursuits won't lead to a job, while subjects like math and science will. So as we grow up, we grow out of our creative habits.
It doesn't have to be this way. We built DrawQuest to bring creative expression back into your daily life.
But I'm not creative!
Creativity isn't a mystical gift passed on to some people and not others. Creativity is like brushing your teeth — it's a healthy habit you should make time for every day.
DrawQuest isn't about "winning" or becoming the next Picasso. DrawQuest is about re-learning to express yourself creatively and sticking with it. Everything about DrawQuest — from our simple drawing tools to the ability to star and play back drawings — was designed to foster a community of budding creators.
