2. What Can You Do? Organize images Locate those images quickly Show past student examples Store and access reference images Use computer applications as an art medium Organizing files especially images is challenge to most art teachers…maybe it is the right brain Critical to put on hands on those images quickly Past examples…show what worked and why and what didn’t work and why Storing reference images helps keep kids off the internet…sometimes the internet is always there answer Adobe applications become an art room…digital paint, paper, and tools…great for those that need instant gratification Create slide shows to post anywhere and everywhere you canOrganizing files especially images is challenge to most art teachers…maybe it is the right brain Critical to put on hands on those images quickly Past examples…show what worked and why and what didn’t work and why Storing reference images helps keep kids off the internet…sometimes the internet is always there answer Adobe applications become an art room…digital paint, paper, and tools…great for those that need instant gratification Create slide shows to post anywhere and everywhere you can

3. Organize images Adobe Photoshop Elements Organizer Uses albums, tags, location, date, and much more to help you locate a specific image Use past student examples. No need to store them and you can compare art images side by side. Limit internet use for finding certain images “Can I get a picture off the internet?” Catalogs, tags and the categories you could create Ways to find pictures…location, date, map As an art teacher my brain works as a spider web and I am all over the place…being able to pull the same picture using multiple ways really helps me Some of my best examples of student work can’t be stored in the art room because the kids want to take them home…store the image saves space and allows me to keep it on record forever I have kids always wanting to pull pictures from the internet and that is great, but sometimes I have kids that would spend hours if I would let them.Catalogs, tags and the categories you could create Ways to find pictures…location, date, map As an art teacher my brain works as a spider web and I am all over the place…being able to pull the same picture using multiple ways really helps me Some of my best examples of student work can’t be stored in the art room because the kids want to take them home…store the image saves space and allows me to keep it on record forever I have kids always wanting to pull pictures from the internet and that is great, but sometimes I have kids that would spend hours if I would let them.

4. Computer Applications as an Art Medium Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 Adobe Illustrator CS3 These two applications are to my art room as important as the paper and paint Just as paint is to a traditional painting on canvas, photoshop is to the computer screen and finally to inkjet paper Computer art is a fairly new medium that does not go without controversy, but the pottery wheel met controversy in its day also from the hand builders…things change and we need to embrace new opportunities that come our way in the art world.These two applications are to my art room as important as the paper and paint Just as paint is to a traditional painting on canvas, photoshop is to the computer screen and finally to inkjet paper Computer art is a fairly new medium that does not go without controversy, but the pottery wheel met controversy in its day also from the hand builders…things change and we need to embrace new opportunities that come our way in the art world.
