    Thanks for the information. I would like to hear any of your project
ideas. I love using Photoshop and have spent a lot of time working with it
to create mixed media collages. I have used t-shirt transfer papers
extensively to transfer Photoshop images onto various surfaces such as
canvas, fabric, rice papers, watercolor paper, etc. and then worked on top
of the image. If you're interested in any of those plans, let me know. Becky

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.
