Title:

    Painting Together Across the World: Collaborative NetPainting Between High School Students & Professional Artist

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    NetPainting describes the use of a feature, NetPainter, in the paint software Painter that supports real-time (synchronous) collaboration between Painter users across a local area network or via the Internet. During a NetPainting session, as one user paints or makes changes to an image the other users see the brush strokes and effects appearing in the canvas window on their own computer screens. Only one user can paint at one time. When users finish painting, they turn the controls over to another user by means of a “traffic light” system. Another user can then carry on where the previous user left off. Users take turns working until the project is finished and/or the session is over. A neat feature of NetPainter is the Chat Window. All users, at any time in a NetPainting session, can write short notes that appear in every user’s Chat Window. In this way, interactions can be written as well as visual.
