Use for old Mac 512's?

Greetings all,

Somehow my husband has accumulated 4 early Macs and a few external drives.
They actually work if one can stand the slowness.

Does anyone know of any good use for these relics?

I have been thinking about setting up a "computer lab" for my art students
(children 6-12). I could teach them basic computer drawing with MacPaint
or possibly Superpaint. They could become familiar with cut and paste
functions and simple page design. I could let them color in their designs
on my Mac IIcx and print them out.

Is there a need for this sort of limited introduction to computer art? It
seems computer design has really moved beyond Macpaint to postscript
drawing in Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.

What do you think?
