Drawing Software For Children

Tux Paint is a free, award-winning drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 (for example, preschool and K-6). It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot 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.

Drawing Software For Children

Feature of Tux Paint :

  • Works on Mac OS X (Intel and PPC), Windows (Windows95 through Vista), Linux and other systems.
  • Fun sound effects are played when tools are selected and used.
  • A cartoon version of Tux, the Linux penguin, appears at the bottom to give tips, hints and information.
  • A number of useful drawing tools are made available. (See Drawing Tools, below.)
  • The drawing canvas is a fixed size, so the user doesn't need to worry about 'pixels' or 'inches' when making a new picture.
  • The entire program fits on a screen as small as 640x480, and can be displayed full-screen, to hide the computer's underlying 'desktop' interface. (It defaults to 800x600 mode, but can run at larger sizes and in portrait or landscape mode, as well.)
  • Parts of Tux Paint have currently been translated into more than 30 languages.
