Hi everyone,
I am a first year middle school art teacher. We are in the process of
building a new school and I have the chance to get 6 computers for my
classroom. I am interested to know about any software that you would
recommend. I use Photoshop, Quark, and Illustrator but I think those
programs may be more involved than I want to get. I will definitely get
Photoshop but I think there are probably easier (more intuitive) programs
for drawing, painting and desktop publishing.
I am also looking for suggestions concerning good art history CD Roms. We
tend to do lots of research and have found that some encyclopedias just
don't cut it. I do like Encarta but I am sure that some of the art related
CDs are better than others. Your input would be appreciated.
I am also interested in any experiences or opinion about teaching computer
graphics at this level. I have the 5th and 6th grades every day for 10
weeks and 7th and 8th grades for 3 days out of a 6 day rotation for 10
weeks. There will only be 6 computers (at best!) and computers will be
part of a traditional art class that is also gaining clay and printmaking
capabilities. I may decide to do a different subject matter with each
grade. Any opinions??????

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Chris
