Drawing for Children is a fun and easy painting and drawing for all ages, but particularly geared for younger users, even those who cannot yet read. The settings are comprehensive and include both a child-proof setting and an advanced setting for older users. The child-proof setting prevents your child from being able to disrupt your broader computer settings and access or accidentally delete important files.

The controls are marked with clear icons so that young children can understand that they are choosing between pencil or paintbrush lines. As well as freehand lines, the user can make pre-set shapes such as circles, squares and rectangles, all of which the user can resize to suit their image.

There are also a host of stencils or stamps which can be clicked on to create as many identical little images as the user desires. These include items like flowers, musical instruments, angels and even spirographical circles.

Holding down the shift and control keys while drawing create different effects, while alt places the whole diagram into a broad grid, which is useful when competing more detailed work.

Pictures can be saved and edited at a later date, and can also be printed out, to take pride of place on a grandparent's fridge!

In advanced mode, the user can make the drawing or painting line very fine, to allow for astonishing detailed and skilled work to be produced. The user can also create a customised paint palette to produce a desired shade for more realistic work.

This is a fun painting and drawing app that is perfect for all ages.
