Too bad the great masters never had 3D graphics software or internet access to the entire art world. If so, they could have created images as mind-blowing as those designed by the kids Sin Lorelei Jones' art class. Ms. Jones teaches Electronic Art, a class she developed to expose high schoolers to cutting-edge technologies, and prepare them for careers in computers or graphic design. She also conducts regular meetings with educators outside her district to spread the word about this new teaching tool. Her efforts have convinced dozens of teachers that the use of electronic media can make for some amazing artwork. "Plus," she reminds them, "compared to most art classes, cleanup is a breeze." For helping students create with keystrokes irushstrokes, State Farm is pleased to present the Good Neigho Award to Lorelei Jones, along with $5, in her name to Homewood-Floss High School of Flossmoor, Il1n STATEFARM GOOD NEIGHBOR STATE FARM INSURANCE COMPANIES Home Offices: Bloomington, Illinois www.statefarm.com Homewood-Flossmoor Art Department Websi www.ECNet.Net/users/gsu0039/hf/artpage.html The Good Neighbor Award was developed in cooperation with the National Art Education Association.
