I personally like Fractal Painter as it has more the feel of working with
art media, but students seem to like Superpaint. Our computer art
teqachers uses Superpaint for Computer Art I and the students do a lot of
great work. In my art room I have six computers and have Quark XPress,
Superpaint, a few copies of Fractal painter (2.0 and 3) a donated copy of
Photoshop (not newest) I would be you could get some trail copies of some
of the programs to try. The computer art teachers uses Freehand for
Computer ARt II. Oh we also have one copy of Illustrator. I have learned
everything I know through one day workshops, trial and error, but a lot of
the students pick up the ideas quickly and I'm sure you would have
students like this, then you could use peer tutoring as there are always
those students with a knack. Good luck.Check the dept of ed in your state
for possibilities of grants and see who writes grants in your district (or
has) Let us know how you are doing.
