From the Book Back
Not since the camera has there been a more controversial art tool than the computer. Sure, kids like it, but does that make it valuable? Is computer art really art? Can a machine exist peacefully and productively in a room full of paints and potter’s wheels? Debbie Greh, experienced in both art teaching and computer use, answers yes, Yes and YES! Her common sense approach guides the reader reassuringly through introductions to hardware, software, scheduling and maintenance. She then offers strategies for learning to control the medium — just as you learn to control a pencil or brush — before exploring the computer’s use in design, drawing and color study. A wide variety of computer artwork — some of it in color — enlivens and amplifies the down-to-earth text. The extensive Reference Guide provides hardware and software buying information, hints about budgeting, displaying computer art and doing your own programming. Whether you’re just beginning to consider the possibilities of computer art, or already have a mouse beside your mat knife, Computers in the Artroom offers you advice, ideas and invaluable inspiration.

I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item.
