Are you someone who loves to draw or is interested in creating digital artwork? Ever since I was a small kid, I have loved created art. It was something that was always put on the backburner since my family worried it would hurt my success in my life. Most of the artists they knew barely got by or had multiple jobs, especially since getting art distributed in the 80’s/early 90’s was quite challenging. Today, the internet makes creating and learning to draw so much easier, especially if you are willing to learn digital art. It is actually one of my biggest regrets, giving up my degree in graphic design in college. Now, I am slowly getting back into art, especially with my husband buying me a very large Wacom tablet for my birthday a while back. My problems with my first tablet, though, are that it is very advanced, large, and quite intimidating to someone just getting started. As I’m starting to learn to take my artwork digital, I recently learned about a new tablet that seemed perfect for a beginner like me – the Wacom Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet.
For anyone who is into drawing, having a Wacom tablet for their computer is one of those dreams come true, especially since they are traditionally quite expensive. With the latest addition to the Wacom line, they have finally released a capable drawing tablet, at a workable price range, that is also quite user friendly. This medium-sized tablet was designed for people who have large monitors (or a multi-monitor setup) who are serious about learning art, or already in the thick of it, creating artwork, drawing manga, or even touching up photography at home.
Wacom even made it fairly easy to use with express keys, allowing to customize your drawing experience by making shortcuts to your most used features (functions like copy and undo, or brushes for those who don’t make mistakes!). Probably the biggest deal to someone like me who learned to draw on paper is the Wacom Pen 4K – a cordless, battery free pen that is extremely pressure sensitive. This is so sensitive that the pen and tablet combo has 4096 pressure sensitivities, allowing you to easily and naturally draw thick or thin lines, as you would normally on paper. In other words, the Wacom Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet is for anyone who wants to make digital art feel seamless.
What else makes this tablet so amazing, especially to someone who already has a larger Wacom tablet? Probably the biggest is its ease of use and how it is a medium size tablet without the typical medium size activity area. In other words, most of the tablet itself is work area, not just a small area like most similar size or smaller tablets. When I get my large drawing tablet out, it requires me removing almost everything from my desk, sometimes even including my keyboard since it takes such a large amount of space, so this is handy for me when I can’t commit to a long practice time!
As well, it is Bluetooth compatible, meaning you no longer have to fight with a cable in your work area, which is pretty amazing when you are working with limited space, and especially while traveling. Its design also makes it perfect for both left and right handed artists. Add in free copies of Corel Painter Essentials (drawing/painting), Corel Aftershot (photo-editing), and Paint Pro (comic mangas), and it is easy to see why the Wacom Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet is perfect for artists of all levels.
Personally, I feel more inspired to do artwork after getting this tablet since it makes the whole learning experience so much easier. If you are looking to get a tablet for yourself or an artist in your family, I highly recommend trying the Wacom Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet. Even better, you can get this tablet at an amazing price at Best Buy and enjoy their price match guarantee, making sure you get the most for your money. Who knew that learning digital art could be so easy and affordable?

I have a large size tablet and I really like it. .It’s great for a lot of things, but like yours, mine just takes up too much space. The first things I thought when I saw this was…that’s the perfect size.and I wish I had gotten .Corel Painter Essentials with mine. This may be my next birthday present to myself…
Michelle L says
This looks so stylish. I hope you are able to show us your artwork that you create for this.
I have always loved to draw bu have never tried drawing on a tablet like this! I like that it has bluetooth capabilities.
I’m not learning to draw or creating digital art. My 11 year old daughter is big on using computers for digital art. I think this would be great for her. She uses an app on a very old 2nd generation iPad to create drawings based on actual photographs.
Deborah D says
This looks really interesting. I think this would be nice for school students to use.
Mia Rose says
My granddaughter loves to draw and likes to experiment with different types of art projects. This might make a good gift for her.
Kim Pincombe Cole says
I’ve never used a drawing tablet before. This one looks like the perfect introduction to this technology…
Never had a sketch pen tablet, it’s useful for artists especially. I forgot there was another name for this.. anyway it has always been popular
Alice F. says
This is such a wonderful addition/alternative to the traditional tablet. What a great modern way to enjoy drawing.
oooh I have a friend who is amazing at drawing who would love to have one of these.
I was really into art when younger. I can imagine how someone who likes to draw would love to have a Wacom Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet! So much thought went into making this, it should be a huge hit.
LeAnn Harbert says
This looks like it would be a lot of fun. My granddaughters would love to have this.

(Making Art Happen with the Wacom Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet) This product sounds amazing to me, I cannot believe that it can do all the things that is posted in the review. I liked reading about this in the review; Its design also makes it perfect for both left and right handed artists. Add in free copies of Corel Painter Essentials (drawing/painting), Corel Aftershot (photo-editing), and Paint Pro (comic mangas), and it is easy to see why the Wacom Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet is perfect for artists of all levels.
Sandy Klocinski says
Awesome tablet! I’d like to see what you create. This would be a great gift for someone with more creative talent than I.

I would love to have one of these. For decades now I have loving drawing,painting etc. This looks amazing.
That is so cool, it would be really cool to use. I’ve never seen anything like this before.
Kathy Ross says
This sounds like a really up to date product for art. Especially the size. It’s great that left handers won’t have any difficulties with this. As a lefty it’s always been a challenge in the past. My oldest son loves art, I wonder it he’s heard of this device yet. Well, I think it’s really nice!
Betty Curran says
My artistic skills leave a great deal to be desired. This would be a great tool for those of us who love technology but need help with the artistic side.
Christina Gould says
Wow, what will they think of next? The future has truly arrived. I’d love to have one of these. Thanks for posting!

Cassandra D says
The Wacom – Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet has a built-in Bluetooth that I really like.
I would use this to touch up photographs and to draw, as well.
Trisha McKee says
Oh there is so much about this that I love. I love the size of it. I could take it to work effortlessly or anywhere I travel. I love the bluetooth feature.
Ellen Stafford says
I would love one of these. I think it would be much better than say trying to draw with a mouse. Thanks for sharing.
Nigel Soper says
Perhaps good for addition to a desktop but most of the time I’m working on a netbook and I’m not sure yet whether another thing to carry around is a good idea
Nancy P says
My brother is a very talented artist & can draw things freehand that look so true to life. But he’s old school… I wonder if he would love to get this for Christmas. Thanks for sharing!
Heather Howard says
This sounds really neat. I would definitely love to see what it is capable off. My kids would probably love it.
I’d love one of those and have them in our schools here.
Wow this is so cool.
