RIP, Artists

Sketch2Photo is a powerful new tool that will make all artists redundant in the near future. With a simple sketch and guiding text, this powerful program scours the web for images that match your design.

The program creates a composition based on forms it identifies in photos to create a photo-collage based on your own arrangement.

Obviously, as technologies such as this one are perfected the human artist will just be an amusing relic of the past, and the job of the art educator will be in creating programs that automatically develop interesting artwork.

21st Century Skills? Let's talk about 22nd Century Skills....

Assuming this idea is expanded and improved, is Sketch2Photo something that you'd use in your classroom to help students plan a composition?

    funny, it was in my drafts for a while too- don't worry about cross posting, Frank. I'm sure the New York Times and the Washington Post cover the same subjects ;)
