Here are a variety of links dealing with art, even where to go to download TuxPaint that we do in the lab. Everything is free. If you find a neat art site or art app, let me know in an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuxpaint- The program we have used in class over the years. You have to download it and it is free but you have to get your parents permission first! Once you download the program, you will need to go back and download stamps if you want them as well.
PaperPlane HINTS for paper airplanes: 1)Use copier paper. Paper should be strong enough to hold a shape and light enough to stay aloft. Avoid newsprint (too flimsy) and poster board (too heavy). 2)Tweak the wings. “Take the back edge of the wings and bend them up between your fingertips a little bit,” says Blackburn. “This will hold up the nose.” 3)Throw evenly. Give the plane an easy and level throw and it will fly straight. An aeronautical engineer, Ken Blackburn, holds the world-record for keeping a single-sheet paper airplane in flight indoors (27.6 seconds).
