As visual art educators, you might even enjoy a chat environment that
is graphic as well as text. First, go to http://www.thepalace.com/
You can try Instant Palace if your browser supports java, or download
the software for free and try it out as a guest.
There is a palace just for kids: http://www.kidsnation.com/
They will let us meet there if we wish. I can make arrangements if
people are interested.
I found The Palace by a reference from an IRC chat... never went back
to IRC after that. I now volunteer time to help at a few palaces,
teaching kids some basic graphics and helping with homework... or..
being playground duty teacher...or, best of all, learning from all the
amazing people who use chat to communicate.
Look for me as KewlJewl if you log on. (a friend in Los Angeles gave
me the nickname because I make jewelry).
