I work with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in a cross platform environment (6
computers, 3 Macs, 3 PC's). The applications are endless. Just about any
painting or drawing or 2 d design assignment that you give students in your
art room can be adapted to computer. Collage type assignments adapt
particularly well to the computer as any assignments that integrate text
into a design such as posters. Students have even made clay figures,
photographed them, and integrated the photos into their "paintings". In
Dabbler and Corel Photopaint one can choose brushes that mimic actual
drawing and painting materials. My advice is to obtain one copy of a few
programs and play with them yourself. The possibilities are endless.
