Look at Teaching Art Online on the Davis site (www.davis-art.com). Craig
Roland has developed a very thorough, well organized online course and CD
about computer art resources and how to use and find them in ways that I had
never even thought about. Nancy Walkup will be teaching the next session. It
starts in a few weeks, October 7. Those who have taken the course or used
the CD always mention the wealth of information in it.
Identity and Place in Contemporary Art will also begin October 7. It
features artists from the Art:21 Public Broadcasting TV series.
Both of these courses will give you a lot of good ideas for using computers
in art class EFFECTIVELY! Good luck!
