About ClipArt


ClipArt is a tool for moving artwork found in other Sugar activities into the Sugar Journal.


Where to get ClipArt

The ClipArt activity is available for download from the Sugar Activity Library: ClipArt

The source code is available on Github.

Using ClipArt

ClipArt scans Sugar activities for artwork (png, svg, jpg, and gif). It presents these artworks in a viewer, allowing the user to select images that are then copied to the Sugar Journal. Once the artwork is in the Sugar Journal, it is available for use in other Sugar activities.

For example, bundled with the Turtle Flags activity are images of national flags. Individual flags can be transferred to the Sugar Journal and used with Write, Fototoons, et al.
