This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Learning to draw or paint can be challenging for artists of all ages. Tracing is a useful way to acquire the muscle memory and fine motor skills necessary to make your own original masterpieces. Art projectors make this fun and easy. These tabletop devices project an image directly onto your paper, canvas, or other surface, so all you have to do is color in the lines. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best art projector on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 08, 2018:

Made sure to include options for young children as well as models that are good for adults. Looked for a variety of types: some work with slides, others with physical images, others with digital files.
