Entering the era of the 2000s is a period that makes learning media meet the steep point. Students begin to feel bored with the media that already exists. In this millennial era learning media need to be promoted which are not only helpful in learning, but also media that is liked by students and attractive for them.

This study took the subject of 7th grade students in SMP 20 Surakarta and SMP 16 Surakarta through the interview stage which was then continued with the design of the user learning application interface for mobile learning. Gores is a mobile learning-based application that has a function and purpose as a medium for student learning in Art and Culture subject. GORES is designed to be interesting and unique for children to teens. The role of the GORES application is as a student facilitator so they are be able to make drawings so as to encourage their potential and creativity in drawing.
