I have considered using the computer as part of my curriculum also (I'd
probably have to cart my OWN in to classes...*LOL*).

I was thinking of doing some sessions on possible art related careers, like
graphic design, web design, etc. Up and coming fields for business minded
artists, etc. There are also many artists displaying their works on the
web. This is an interesting thought too, and I will try to make the
students aware of the possibilities.

Also, showing students how to work with scanned images in photoshop is on
my "to do" list.
