Tux Paint is a free, award-winning drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 (for example, preschool and K-6). Tux Paint is used in schools around the world as a computer literacy drawing activity. 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.

Tux Paint runs on a variety of platforms, including all versions of Windows(including Tablet PC), Mac OS X 10.3 and up, Linux, BeOS and Haiku, FreeBSDand NetBSD.
