Whiteboards were introduced into the game in November 2008. They allow the player to draw or write on them. They can be bought from the Gifts & Flowers store for 3,000 coins each. Whiteboards are very popular in YoWorld. Many people take up Whiteboard Art. Some very incredible pieces of artwork have come from the whiteboards, and they can be worth a lot of coins. An example of this is artwork from a YoWorldian called Shan. In 2008 - 09, Shan made many beautiful pieces of artwork. These can be worth in the 6-figure zone now because of the demand some people have for them.
There are 8 different colors you can draw with. You can also erase your design which clears your drawing so you can start over. By locking a whiteboard, it prevents anyone else from drawing on it.
Many variations of the successful Whiteboards have been released, such as carvable pumpkins and paintable easter eggs. A set of different canvases were also made, although never released. These canvases had 16 colors to draw with.
An upgraded version of whiteboards called Paintboards were released on June 30, 2015.
For some time now, there have been unreleased canvases floating around within YoWorld. It is believed that these were brought into the game by hacking, pictures of them can be found below. These canvases contained 16 different colors, unlike the classical canvases, which only have 8.
