[8:30 AM] Discover Painting For Kids
by Staff

Crescent Vision Interactive has announced a child-centric draw and paint program, Discover Painting for Kids. The new title is designed to make it easy for kids to learn basic draw and paint skills, as well as familiarizing them with common computer tasks. According to Crescent Vision Interactive:

Kid Friendly Interface Encourages Exploration and Creativity:

Discover Painting's unique interface is a virtual kid's painting studio where everything on the screen can be clicked and used to compose a picture. This studio layout uses brightly colored, rendered images of everyday objects to represent the various painting tools. Many of these easy to use tools are actually sophisticated image processing effects in disguise.

Discover Painting features over 30 painting and drawing tools, in addition to a library of 144 stamps, visual special effects, sounds effects, and an expandable set of coloring pages and starter backgrounds.

Parent Friendly Too:

Discover Painting also includes an option specifically designed to conserve printer ink. Complete instructions are provided in the form of standard help screens and automatically appearing tool tips. The main window always opens full screen to maximize the painting area and to minimize the chance of kids accidentally clicking on something off limits.

Discover Painting for Kids is available for US$25. A time limited demonstration version is also available. You can find more information at the Crescent Vision Interactive web site.
