TuxPaint, open source drawing program for young 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.

(See the full list of features.)

Starting out
Starting out
Tux Paint starts with an empty canvas, ready to be drawn on.
A coloring book picture
You can also load 'Starter' pictures, like this coloring-book chicken.
'Starter' scene
Some 'Starter' pictures include both a foreground (which can't be drawn over), and a background.



A simple drawing
Draw freehand pictures using the various brushes.

The Line tool
Perfectly straight lines can be drawn with the line tool.

The Shapes tool
Filled and unfilled shapes can be drawn in different colors and at various angles using the shapes tool.

Rubber Stamps
The stamp tool allows a wide array of pre-drawn and photo-realistic images to be added to a drawing.
(Or compose the drawing entirely of stamps!)

Tinted Rubber Stamp images
Most stamps can be mirrored, flipped, shrunk and grown. Some stamps can be colored or tinted, like these flowers.

Outer-space rubber stamp images

Many stamp themes are included with Tux Paint. You can also add your own.

The text tool
A simple text tool lets children annotate their pictures or create greeting cards. It also helps keyboarding skills!

Opening a picture
Saved pictures are accessed using a thumbnail browser.

Saving a picture
Children are never presented with more than simple Yes/No dialogs.

'Magic' Tools

The blocks magic tool
Pixelate pictures with the blocks magic tool.

The chalk and blur magic tools
Turn a picture into a chalk drawing, or blur parts of it.

The sparkles and negative magic tools
Add sparkles to a picture, or invert the colors.

  1. My TuxPaint installed straightly from Edubuntu DVD with no changes. This is far better than regular Windows Paint.
