Donald, Sounds like a great grant. What grant is it? Is it a local company
and how much? I've supported my art tech class through 3 grants this year.
I would like to find some more for next year. I bought spin object for
animation but hyper studio and Photoshop have animation capabilities too and
I need to find time to experiment with them. My 8th graders did clay
animation with the spin object software bought through Tech4learning. We
found it easy to use. If you have a fast network you can see samples at my
website on the 8th grade art tech page. I need to redesign that section so
it loads faster. Have fun with your new toys.

Subject: grants (received!)
I received my tech from my 1st grant LAST monday (graphire 2 tablet and
Painter 7) and yesterday (monday again) I found out my other grant was
approved--digital Mavica CD camera, digital camcorder.... they changed part
of it. Instead of upgrading my current computer, they're going to give me a
NEW one (glad I have everything backed up on my old one) and are downgrading
my software some... Anybody out there use the Claymation software? I'll
receive that instead of Premiere... not real happy about it but I'll get my
big toys and I'll just write another grant for Premiere this spring...
