Here are links that are very helpful in making the most of this electronic medium.

Links to Mac OS related sites:

A site where you will find excellent information about the applications you are using, or considering purchasing. Dave Nagel is a terrific host.
A great help for beginners and experienced users alike. Bill Fox loves to help people.
The best way to keep in touch with the more "technical" aspect of computing.
M. Breeden gives such detailed reviews and instructions that even I can attempt upgrading  processor, RAM, Cache and Graphics Cards with the help of his tutorials. (See next link also.)
This is a terrific site and list for those of us using PowerMacs 8500 and 8600. Lots of information on hardware, software and AV work. (Highly recommended)
Of course!

Links to sites related to Art:

This site is a joy to visit, but you need patience and a large monitor ;-) (Downloading files works well.)
(The Cézanne pictures on my page came from this location.)
Félicien Rops is a painter that deserves to be better known. This is "his" museum.

Links to sites related to Art and education:

This is, by far, the very best Art school I know. The years I spent teaching there have spoiled me to such an extent that I can no longer contemplate working in "ordinary" institutions. The focus on
"the work" instead of "the degree" is what makes it so appealing (and demanding).

The colleagues I met there were of that rare kind one can disagree with yet admire and respect

if only because of the seriousness and quality of their discourse.

If you are still looking "for more" after having gone through the regular academic grinder, look into
the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture.

This is a link to my art school, the "Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Liège." (Belgium)
I spent 7 years of my life there, most of them good, some of them absolutely magic. I had the immense good fortune to work with a superior teacher, Joseph Louis, who helped open my mind to Art as a voyage, a practice.
I have been on my own for over 30 years since I last worked with him, and I am still discovering layer after layer of meaning in, basically, the directions he helped me find when I was his student.
Joseph Louis is, by far, the best teacher I have ever met.

This is the Missouri Art Educators Association Web Site, dedicated to K12 students and teachers. Emphasis is placed on process (creativity encouraged!). Lots to discover. Could be an interesting model for other educational groups web sites.

Links to sites related to music (and Art):
René Aubry is a French composer who writes and performs music that I must and will bring to animation.
His music is nothing short of trance inducing and always is a great experience, no matter how often one listens to it.
This site offers some excerpts of his work though too brief to enable the listener to really enter.

"Things of the Non" is a site that presents several links to artists pages, interesting reading and also, a great Mac only  music application: "FretPet "! I consider myself very fortunate to have come across it and am grateful to its author,  Scott Lahteine for such serious yet fun to use (to "play with") software. If you want your MIDI stuff to sing, look into FretPet.
FretPet now has its own domain, see it here .

This is a link to my internet service provider, IGS Perth. (IGS managed to maintain services during the ice storm of '98.)
