You can expand the software to include sets of cute animals, African silhouettes, cars and construction themes.
"Now parents can empower their young artists to create colorful, multilayered artwork anywhere with ease," explains Karen Auman, mother and creator of handPaint. "The application was inspired by my middle son who loves to draw race cars and motorcycles but became easily frustrated when he couldn't convey his wishes in his Christmas letter to Santa. Now he revels in the exciting car portraits he can create."
