Here is a watercolor program I thought is worth a look into.  The teachers and students have some very strong pieces.  This is at UNT (North Texas) which seems to have a good art program.  Typical facilities of a state school but there is talent there.

I love cameras but SLRs and now DSLRs are a pain to carry around a lot of the time.  I have been using a Nikon point and shoot for the past 5 years and thought it was time for a new camera.  The buttons started to stick and it used regular batteries, as well.  I did a lot of research and finally choose a Canon S95.  The next thing was to find either a refurb or a used model.  I really did not have a lot of luck with the used route due to shipping and the price ranges.  So,  I starting looking for the best price for a new model.  Amazon had a 8% sale with free shipping and no tax.  I waited to the next day to order the new camera and they were sold out!  Several months later, Amazon had the same model on sale again.  I purchased it immediately!  Wish me luck.;lst;1

Using my new camera, I saw this at the Fort Worth Zoo.
