So glad I found you while web surfing tonight! I teach elementary art and just got four student computers in my room, internet ready. My older students will LOVE these!!

Your videos are great and informative.
I am really looking forward to more in the future.
Is it possible to also upload them onto YouTube and/or TeacherTube? You have them available to download and I would love to link them to my wiki for students. This would unfortunately eat into my disc space but if on YouTube, they could simply be embedded.
Keep up the good work!
