Tickling Our Funny Bones with Computer Art
By Colleen Messina
  

1     People have used pencils and paintbrushes to create art for centuries. Today, artists have a new tool. Computer art is a whole new art style that can tickle our funny bones.
 
2     Computer art is any art created with the help of a computer. Computer art is used for ads. It is used on TV. And it is used to make movies. Computer artists have created Buzz Lightyear and other computer art friends to make us laugh.

Today, CAD designs everything from cars to space shuttles. You probably like CAD best in movies, though. Toy Story was the first computer-animated film. Pixar made the film in 1995. It won awards. Then, Pixar made a new movie. It became a huge hit. It was called A Bug's Life.
