I teach Sci Vis 1 and 2 in Greensboro, NC and the art teacher showed me your website. I think its great! I plan to have my students go to your website – especially the graffiti lesson because so many of my high school age boys are very into the art style of graffiti. Being able to take their interest and my goal of learning photoshop and combine them makes my class so much more fun to teach and learn in! Thanks for this website! – Ms. Kennedy
