Drawing, Painting, Coloring for Children – Software Gambar untuk Anak

Pagi ini setelah aku buka buku Teknologi Informasi dan Komunikasi SD kelas 1 punya anakkku, aku menemukan “Mengenal Paint” pada bab 5.

Di buku itu disebutkan bahwa tujuan untuk mengenal software pengolah gambar dan diharapkan si anak mampu untuk :

  1. Mengenal Software Paint
  2. – Mengenal tampilan layar paint
    – Mengenal ikon dan menu di Paint

  3. Menggunakan ikon-ikon untuk menggambar
  4. Menunjukkan gambar

Tapi bukan Paint yang aku perhatikan di situ, tapi adanya software pengolah gambar selain paint, yaitu Drawing for Children dan Tux Paint. Kedua software tersebut seperti Paint, tapi mempunyai tampilan yang lebih menarik bagi si anak dan juga disediakannya gambar-gambar siap pakai yang berupa stamp dan backgound.

Kalau kita bicara tentang pengenalan komputer pada anak secara dini, hal tersebut tidaklah mudah. Si anak akan lebih suka bermain. Tapi bagaimana cara bermain tersebut kita alihkan menjadi permainan interaktif, itulah yang harus kita pikirkan sebagai orang tua.

Untungnya,saat ini kita tidaklah kesulitan untuk mendapatkan software-software untuk anak-anak kita. Baik itu yang free sotware atau dengan beli software-sofware education.

Software Gambar untuk Anak

Berikut ini beberapa software gambar untuk anak yang gratis kita peroleh.

Drawing for Children

Drawing for Children merupakan free drawing program untuk anak dengan opsi dan tampilan yang menarik. Kita dapat menggambar bermacam-macam pens yang berbeda, kita dapat mengambil gambar jaddi/ stamps, membuat text effect, dan lainnya. Software/ program ini di tujukan untuk anak-anak yang masih kecil, tapi tidak menutup kemungkinan anak-anak yang lebih besar menggunakannya.

Drawing for Children berjalan di PC dengan sistem operasi Windows 95 sampai Windows 7.

Tux Paint

Tux Paint merupakan software gratis drawing program yang ditujukan untuk anak berumur 3 sampai 12 tahun. Tux Paint mempunyai kombinasi tampilan yang mudah digunakan, sound effect yang bagus, dan cartoon maskot yang memandu anak dalam penggunaan software/ program.

Fitur yang terdapat pada Tux Paint yaitu :


Works on Mac OS X (Intel and PPC), Windows (Windows95 through Vista), Linux and other systems.

Simple Interface

  • A number of useful drawing tools are made available.
  • The drawing canvas is a fixed size, so the user doesn’t need to worry about ‘pixels’ or ‘inches’ when making a new picture.
  • The entire program fits on a screen as small as 640×480, and can be displayed full-screen, to hide the computer’s underlying ‘desktop’ interface. (It defaults to 800×600 mode, but can run at larger sizes and in portrait or landscape mode, as well.)
  • Loading and saving of images is done using thumbnails, so no knowledge of the underlying operating system’s filesystem structure is needed. Even filenames are unnecessary.

Entertaining Interface

  • Fun sound effects are played when tools are selected and used.
  • A cartoon version of Tux, the Linux penguin, appears at the bottom to give tips, hints and information.
