Keep in mind that best use of technology in art is not always the use of
software. I have been teaching art and technology workshops for the past two
years. One of the most popular is a workshop where I show teachers how to
locate an artist online. Of course if you are actually going to contact an
artist during your presentation, you need to set that up in advance.
I have been very successful in contacting artists around the world and they
have all responded to me or to teachers or to students. I am now working
with an internationally acclaimed eco-architect-artist who has agreed to be
interviewed by a group of school kids here. What a way to show kids and
teachers that some artists are actually still alive! ;-)

An offshoot of this interview activity is that local school districts have
embraced this idea and recently brought the artist interviewed in this
article to our area. Being a graphics artist who creates artwork using
software, he then taught teachers how to use software to make art. No copy
and paste, real drawing with the mouse.
Good luck with your presentation.
