Paint: A collaborative space for creation

User interface

Oficina (the Paint Activity) was developed and adapted to the XO using Python for the team NATE-LSI (Integrated Systems Laboratory), in the Polytechnical School at University of São Paulo, Brazil.

Its interface has been translated into many languages: Portuguese, English, French, Spanish, German, Chinese, Korean, Arabic and Greek.

Goals

Paint activity UI mockup

The Draw activity will provide a canvas for an individual or a group of children to express themselves creatively through drawing.


Drawing Tools

Drawing

The paintbrush, pencil, and eraser are the primary freeform drawing tools. The sizes and shapes of the brush and eraser may be adjusted via their secondary palette, which is shown by hovering your mouse on the tool icon.

'Selection'

Selecting portions of the canvas with the rectangular marquee tool allows you to move and delete rectangular portions of your painting.

Shapes

The Paint Activity has a toolbar dedicated to shape drawing. By clicking and dragging, you can create an instance of the currently selected shape and expand it to the size of your choosing. The interactive placement system makes the shape too even more powerful. Each shape has a secondary palette which allows various parameters to be set, such as the number of edges on a polygon, the number of points on a star, or the angles of a triangle.

Text

Simple text support allows you to include typographic language within your drawing.

Image

From within the "Image" tab, you may import images from the Journal into your drawing. Clicking the "Insert Image" icon on the left, you can choose an item from your Journal to put into Paint.
