      Dear Art Educators,

      Tom Chambers has shared another online exhibit with me. See ARTifact:
      http://zquart.tomrchambers.com/ec.html
      This is a photoshop lesson done with freshman students. Click on the
      finished work to see larger view - a smaller thumbnail is shown of the
      original photograph.

      From Tom:

      This is the first time for these Freshmen art majors
      to experience and apply software [PhotoShop] to a
      photographic image to manipulate it to produce an
      ARTifact. The photographs were acquired and exchanged
      through student partnerships [Classes 1 and 2/Classes
      3 and 4] for manipulation.

      This process and its first-generation art product
      borders on "The Exquisite Corpse" ... based on an old
      parlor game and used as one of the Surrealist
      techniques exploiting the mystique of accident. One of
      the basic tenants of Surrealism is the notion that
      creativity/genius can be a shared experience, and the
      student partnerships were set up to create a greater
      awareness of this concept and its Movement.

      Over a very short timeline ... four days [three hours
      per day] of class instruction ... the students
      acquired basic software application skills to begin to
      move towards making digital art for print and online
      presentation.

      The first-generation art products are open for a
      true approach to "The Exquisite Corpse". Contact Tom
      R. Chambers:

      if you and/or your students are interested in
      continuing this process.

      This looks like a good lesson. I know some of you have already tried
      it with students. Tom and Harold Olejarz have been doing a photo
      exchange. See TOMHAROLD: http://www.tomharold.com/

      For more work by Tom's students see Student exhibition directory:
