Day One Computer Art

My 6th graders have a "bonus" day of art for 9 weeks a year.  I try to have them create computer generated art but 9 weeks is a really short time to learn much in way of super technical programs.  Today is my first class meeting and we will creating a poster.
I am going to read them the book I Am an Artist by Pat Lowery Collins.  It is a nice little book that points out that we can be artists even when we aren't painting or drawing.  We are then going to the computer lab where they will search for images that would work in their "I Am an Artist" poster.  Here is my finished example.
