How simple do you need? Tux Paint is very good, but more suited for younger pupils.
I've had a request to get Revelation Natural Art, which is an art program. But it's 300 bar for a full site licence. So I'm looking for something similar but free. Can anyone recommend anything? Thanks!

I don't have a lot to do with curriculum software, but perhaps Sumopaint might be worth a look?
It's free and on-line. In fact, it's a tour-de-force in what can be done in a browser.

We replaced Revelation Natural Art with Tuxpaint when I upgraded the suite, as I could find no record of any licensing, and the teachers are pretty happy with it - only go up to year 6 in this school though.
It's very easy to make your own as you just need to copy the files and make a shortcut. I would post the one I have but a) it's quite big (60MB) and b) I've never been sure of the legalities of distributing third-party binary installers for GPL software. I think its fine to do so but something in the back of my mind has never come to terms with it.
Thanks guys - love this forum! Well, I've had a look at a few freebies, and then I remembered we have the 2Simple Collection. Which is an odd thing to forget, given that it takes 4 hours to install (ish) and is therefore always the thing I dread most. The paint program in that seems quite good - simple, as you'd expect, but with the steady addition of functionality as you move between the different versions. So I'm going to suggest that and see what people in the school reckon...fingers crossed!
@AngryTechnician Forgive me for probably being simple, but what do you use to create the MSI, I have (not very thoroughly) looked before for a simple msi creator, but never really found one that I would be comfortable using.

paint.net is pretty good and worth a look
ArtRage (has to be version 2 starter edition now) is quite good. More an Art painting program then a graphics one. Pick a tool, pick a colour and away you go. They will try and steer you to buying a version but Version 2 Starter Edition is free. I used to use the previous version as a demo on whiteboards.
@ ZeroHour - I Did end up sharing it out from the app folder
@ AngerTechnician - Cheers, will have a look
It's a freehand drawing tool that is very easy to use and has some great options including tablet support
