If you own a Promethean board then you might be interested to know that Promethean have teamed up with ArtRage to provide a “Promethean” version of the very cool painting package. I’m not totally sure yet how this version differs from the normal version of Artrage that’s available already, but I am trying to find out.

You can download the Promethean version of Artrage here. (more on the Promethean blog)

If you don’t own a Promethean board, then you can download the regular, free version of Artrage from the Artrage website here.

If you’ve never used ArtRage, it gives you the feeling that you are painting with real paint, as oppose to pixels. It’s really easy to pick up, even my 3 year old niece had a ball producing abstract art with it! It’s fun to use with a mouse, but the addition of an IWB makes for a very different painting experience!

ArtRage Starter Edition gives you 8 painting tools and lets you create, save, and print as many pictures as you like and doesn’t limit their size. ArtRage 2.5 Full Edition contains four new paint tools, the ability to paint on multiple layers, metallic paint, stencils and rulers, and a long list of additional features. If you like the starter edition you can upgrade to a full version of the software for about $25.
