What's a good, very basic paint program for OSX?

I teach in an elementary school computer lab. I used to use Kid Pix as my primary program for teaching Kindergarten, first and second graders. In its first few incarnations KP simply brilliant and perfect for teaching kids about using computers.
Now KP- while still a fabulous program for home use, is so bloated with 'cool features' the basics are obscured, and it no longer meets my needs. I'm looking for a simple paint program that is NOT cute, and does NOT have a proprietary interface. Ideally it would have most of the standard paint tools, be colorful and simple to use. Extra points: free or shareware, and the ability to easily include files in a slideshow that includes voice narration of each slide.
If I can't find anything better, I'll probably use the paint program in Appleworks. Oh, and I can't use older versions of KP, I tried- it crashes in OSX.
