Perhaps a scanner can solve your problem? If you
don't have one, they're not so expensive anymore.
You could do a project that involves the students
creating flat artwork, scanning it in, and then
manipulating it on the computer. For example, have
them do a 'cubist' project in which they draw 10 or
more views of the same object, scan them in, and then
manipulate them in photoshop.
You could even have them work so that they go back and
fourth between the computer and the drawing/painting
part of the project on an every-other-day basis.
The students who start on the computers could use
photoshop to select a color scheme, or do a 'test'
composition with some pre-scanned photos or other
Hope that was helpful.
