Young children love to draw. However, at around age 10, they begin to feel that their drawings are unrealistic and give up drawing altogether. This study aims to help those who did not receive the proper training in drawing at the time and as a result remain at that level of drawing. First, through 12 drawing workshop sessions, we condensed 2 prominent art education books into 10 core drawing skills. Second, we designed and implemented a novel interactive system that helps the user repeatedly train these skills in the 5 stages of drawing a nice car in an accurate perspective. Our novel interactive technique, Tick'n'Draw, inspired by the drawing habits of experts, provides friendly guidance so that the user does not get lost in the many steps of perceptual and perspective drawing. Third, through a pilot test, we found that our system is quick to learn, easy to use, and can potentially improve real-world drawing abilities with continued use.
