Introduction: Arduino UNO TFT Paint

It was a little hard for me going through google to find a code that was specifically for the UNO with a 2.8" TFT LCD screen sitting on top of it, so I thought this might help another newbie out.

Items you'll need:

1. Arduino Uno R3

2. Elegoo UNO R3 2.8" TFT touch screen

3. Arduino IDE installed on your pc

Step 1: Connection

Connect your UNO to your pc via usb, and go to

When you click on the Elegoo TFT LCD screen it will download a zip file. Extract it to your Arduino libraries folder.

Then go to C:\Users\XXXXX\Documents\Arduino\libraries\2.8inch_Arduino_ILI9341\Arduino Demo_UNO&Mega2560\Example04-Touch\tftpaint and open up the tftpaint.ino

Step 2: Connecting the Screen

Simply place the screen on top of your UNO (SD card slot should face the UNO usb port). Make sure to press it into place.

Then just upload your sketch to your UNO!

Fyi: If you want to disconnect your UNO from your pc you'll need to connect it to an external power source.
