Looking for websites where children can create (and print) an art project or picture on-line.

I am running a summer computer camp program for kids and need some options for students who are burned out on Kid Pix. many of them use it during the school year and want to try something different. There is a website I have used before where children can design their own 'wild self' on-line and print it http://www.buildyourwildself.com/ I am looking for other websites like this where students can make/create other things. I would prefer if they were relatively ad-free (or else, the ads are unobtrusive) but the main priority is a quality activity where children will finish it with a nice picture they can print and take home. I have googled, but am having trouble finding quality stuff! Ideas?

This was posted a few days ago. Pretty neat stuff, but not sure how easily you can print.

I don't know how well printing will work, but this site is pretty cool:

Several sites, some have a print option, some would need to be printed using the browser.

Mr Picasso Head

Jackson Pollock



Kaleidoscope painting

Medal maker

Mobile maker

Sand art (click on the box at the top left to get started)

You need Internet explorer for this site:

Matisses Pieces

This isn't printable, but kids still might like being able to animate

I'm not sure what age the kids you're talking about will be, but you might want to check out some of Ze Frank's "interactive toys" - Flowers or the Scribbler for example. Just <cough> try and steer 'em away from the Doodler.
