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.

1. How can I create a picture using online tools?



"Working with Barbara Bray is like working with an angel of the pacific -- her knowledge and talents and generosity exceed anyone I've ever worked with for over two decades in the field of education, especially educational technology. Working within the framework of the Universal Builder helps you to clarify your thoughts and make your project clearer and more appealing, and then, once Barbara steps in and does her magic, your creation goes beyond what you could have ever imagined it to be. I am so grateful and honored to have connected with such talent!"
