      Greetings William (and all),

      Art Cars would be a great sculpture lesson for middle school kids. If you
      don't have ceramics - then assemblage/paper mache would be fun.... Maybe get
      some cheap cars and trucks from garage sales for the kids to
      alter/embellish, too.

      Here is a link to Justin Kramer's Ceramic Art Cars:
      http://www.princetonol.com/groups/iad/Files/Justin4.htm
      pdf file takes a while to load:
      http://www.princetonol.com/groups/iad/Files/ArtCars.pdf

      I have lots of links for Art Cars - I just have to find them and add to
      Justin's lesson page. Justin used images from an Australian ceramic artist.

      I enjoyed looking at your site and added it to my page for Art Teachers.

      I really like Unknown Ancestor - the bold colors - reminds me of a Cuban
      printmaker (whose name escapes me now - I used him when I taught Andy Warhol
      and printmaking). Is yours done from high constrast photo - then adding
      color as a layer in Photoshop?
      Wow! Bird on a Wire is great too-- looks almost like a reduction relief
      print. I like the colors in Portrait 1, too. I sure hope you are able to do
      some digital work with your students.

      William - could I put the Art History time line on Incredible Art
      Department? If yes - tell me the name of your school.

      (decorated) car on his site. I was involved in organizing an arts event that
      included the public working on a decorated car under the guidance of artist
      David Best. It was a hit!. The people loved it. Its a great idea for a
      fundraiser or community involvement. The car was later part of the local
      annual parade.

        Thanks Judy.

        Feel free to use any lesson plans. I'm at Prairie Grove Middle School in Arkansas.

        I also hope I get to teach digital art, but at this time do not know if my request for software is approved. By the way, anyone interested in teaching Photoshop.... Schools can get licenses for Photoshop Elements for about $30 each computer. A great savings over full Photoshop and includes all of the most used stuff.

        As of my own artwork, I usually use digital photos that I manipulate in Photoshop 7. Or, as in the case of Unknown Ancestor, scanned images from old family B&W photos. I use many layers so the image may be changed directly and I may add other masking or transluscent layers over the image. As in Bird on a Wire, I do a lot of work with a stylus, using the smearing tool, burn, dodge and sponge tools, etc.

          get licenses for Photoshop Elements for about $30 each computer.

          This is the program I use in teaching my middle school kids digital
          art. I teach a Girls Technology Club after school and we used the
          campanion site Giant Campus with online tutorials and lessons. The
          girls loved it. Right now I just have some info and web design stuff
          that they did on my site but I will be reposting many of their
          digital art and the assignments that go with it soon.

                Cathy, I just discovered that the links won't work for me either, and
                I am in district. So once school starts I will find out what the deal
                is and repost the tutorials once they are working.

                  When I checked the links, I noticed that they had
                  posted a javascript message that said this. The new
                  link then appeared in a pop-up menu. It is possible
                  that your district doesn't allow pop-ups or, if you
                  are accessing it at home you may have pop-ups
                  disabled. I also noticed that a large chunk of links
                  were outdated. I am posting the direct links that will
                  work for you below:
