I’m one of the least qualified people around to give anyone advice on painting since I have no experience or artistic ability to speak of, but on the Internet, I can pretend that I know what I’m doing. There are plenty of services that provide people like me with the tools that we need to become digital artists of sorts, and what’s really cool is that you can sometimes collaborate with people online and learn from what they do while they do it. WebCanvas may be more of an area for graffiti than anything else, but this collaborative painting is open to artists that are both skilled and unskilled.

Anyone can go on WebCanvas, specify a location, and start using the tools to create art. Like I alluded to, saying that a lot of what is on here is art is a bit of a stretch, but at the same time, if you’re willing to find them, some people have created some incredible works of art. The service is live, so if others are painting near you, you’ll see their work and they’ll see yours. As much as you may want to, just try not to erase what others have created. No, seriously. WebCanvas is like a worldwide art project, and you’re invited.
