Transport yourself back to a 90s elementary school computer lab with this public-domain version of Kid Pix 1.1!

Kid Pix is a bitmap drawing program designed for children first released for the Macintosh in 1989.

Despite the program being designed for children, it is accessible and relevant for all ages. Its bit-like graphic design style that was popularized in the 90s is making a resurgence today. With its satisfying sound effects and easy-to-use features, Kid Pix remains a valuable treasure, now saved in perpetuity on the Archive.

Happy drawing!
