traditional and digital photographyBecky,
I am currently teaching photography to 10th, 11th and 12th graders. I also teach the yearbook. We are beginning to place digital images in PageMaker for the yearbook. I am trying to introduce a new course next year called Commercial Art. We have PageMaker, Illustrator and Photo shop. I am becoming more and more comfortable with Photoshop and I am very familiar with PageMaker. I am in the middle of planning the curriculum. I spent three weeks at Penland this past summer studying Infrared, the physics of pinhole photography, lens and created a 4' x 6' photo mosaic. I am planning on taking a course this summer that involves digital imaging. I am more than happy to share any project ideas with you. Take a look at my web site and go to Photography Students' Pictures.

      I am taking a graduate course using traditional and digital photography
  in the art classroom. One of our assignments is to talk with educators who
  are using one, the other, or a combination of traditional and digital
  photography in their classrooms. I would love to hear from anyone who is
  using photography in their computer or art classes.
      I don't personally have access to a darkroom in my school and am leaning
  towards using digital cameras, scanners, and the computers with my students.
  I am teaching them to work in Photoshop and we're going to be doing computer
  transfers on fabric to create a large collage. I'd be interested in
  exchanging information. Thanks.
