Finding an artist that doesn’t create the
occasional offensive or even pornographic artwork is
very difficult. I have tried but simple can NOT look
at every piece of art that an artist ever created to
make sure it is school appropriate. In your research
you may come across artwork that is offensive. The
school tries to block these images but sometimes
they get through. If you run on to a work that
offends you just click out quickly and move on. If it
is really offensive let the computer lab person know
so they can block the site. Good luck!
