For high school level, I recommend Dabbler 2.0. It has better interface
design and graphic tools than Kid Pix an Fine Artist. Also, Dabbler can
produce cartoon Animation and record the process of painting and then play
it back. The CD-ROM version of Dabbler 2.0 is for both MAC and IBM. The
price I bought one is only $44.

For elementary school level or for those who are scared by computer, I
would said that Fine Artist is another good choice except Dbber2.0. It is
an interactive multimedia software with very good user-friendly design.
Including the painting studio, Fine Artist has a project workshop which
students can make comic strips and design stickers or buttons. Also, it
provides a picture show that students can oragnize their artworks in
sequency with some transitions and sound effects .... there are many
parts that are worth exploring more. In a word, it is a very cool
software. My students really enjoyed it very much. The price of CD-Rom is

hope this helps.
