Many artists like pallets, holding pencils and brushes in their hands, and working with the textured surface of a canvas or paper.

But many of the same artists also like digital portfolio, easy publishing, one-button sharing, working with layers, mashing images, video, and music, and other potential that comes with working with digital tools. And this is especially true for those working in art education–teachers that have to handle the workflow of dozens of students working on dozens more projects as a time.

    Has anyone tried – HUGE ZON DEALS (just google it) There is a little gold box on the site that gives discount promo codes for any product on Amazon. Got all of my apps for cheaper than the listed rates. Don’t know how I found HUGE ZON DEALS, was just googling. Now, I use this tool before I buy anything on Amazon.
