I was talking to an artist who uses computer programs to create
artworks, he said that the real 'cutting edge' computer artists are the
one's that program the computer to do the artwork rather than the ones
who just use the ready made tools on the readymade program. What do you
think of this?

Also, If this is the case, is Microworlds Project builder - (Logo)
achieving this result for primary (elementary) students?

Does a program such as Logo help to integrate art, maths and science?

(Logo is the program designed many years ago where the child provides a
little turtle on the screen with commands in order to draw patterns.)

Seymour Papert has written alot about this in his book 'Mindstorms'. Has
anyone read this fantastic book?

I am very keen for your comments...
