Art software to let kids draw and paint. For children 3 to 12 years.
Tux Paint is a free, award-winning drawing program for children ages 3 to 12. 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. Along with paintbrush, shapes and text, Tux Paint includes a "stamp" feature to add pre-drawn or photographic imagery to pictures, and a set of "magic tools" that provide filter effects (like blur, tint and waves) and interesting drawing tools (like train tracks, bubbles and grass).
Tux Paint includes a collection of "starter" images, both coloring-book style and photo-realistic, and a large collections of stamps are available as a separate download. Additional content can be added by parents and teachers, or downloaded from 3rd parties.
Tux Paint is available for Linux, BSD, Windows, Mac OS X and Haiku operating systems.

Excellent work! Tux Paint works perfectly! Thanks!
really recommend this drawing program to for kids at elementary-school ages. It's has a lot of options like stamps and brushes and my older boy really enjoys using it.
While this is a program for kids, it has some unique features useful for filmmakers. In the future, Wikiversity will create templates and stamps so this program can be used for rapid thumbnail storyboarding. I work with MAC version.
This is not one of the most capable paint programs out there, but it certainly is among the nicest ones -- and although it is meant for kids, there's no reason why someone who's a little young at heart can't play with this one. ;)
Used this for a couple of years having tried a couple of alternatives - couldn't be without it.
It's excellent software! Very good!
