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.

Tux Paint is free, Open Source software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. It is developed by volunteers around the world. We work on it as a labor of love, with the hopes that people will find it useful, and in turn share it with their own friends and family.

Because Tux Paint (and other open source software) is free of cost and not limited in any way, a school can use it today, without waiting for procurement or a budget!
