Art Pad – create your own online masterpiece


It’s Friday – and office workers up and down the country are looking for ways to waste time before the weekend. And there aren’t many better than Art Pad.

Art Pad is a great little site that allows you to create your own piece of artwork with some basic art tools. Just select your canvas size, choose your painting tool and colour and away you go. You can even sign it at the bottom. And once you are happy with your effort (as I was with my tribute to Jackson Pollock to your left), you can hang it in the virtual gallery or replay your painting effort with the click of a button.

And like all the best sites, you can laugh at someone else at the same time, browsing previously-submitted artworks with a sense of smugness – knowing that your picture is the one oozing real talent
