Tux Paint

Open Source painting software for children. Tux Paint is a free drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 (preschool and K-6). It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot (penguin) who guides children as they use the program. Kids are presented with a blank canvas and a variety of drawing tools to help them be creative. There are similar drawing tools as Kid Pix: line tools, shapes, even stamps that are very real and magic tools that say what they do. When you save, you can see them as thumbnails, print, and use with other programs.

Essential Question(s)
1. How can I create a picture using online tools?



"Thank you for such a well designed site for this course! All the links work, and it is easy to maneuver from one place to another. I like how the assignments are clearly listed and have the date next to them. I can get right to learning when I log on rather than struggling to figure out how how to get from place to place. I’m taking another online course now and it is a nightmare and very frustrating.

Thanks for making this a good experience!"
