The processes might be better, from the standpoint of
educational value, if the conversions are *not* very
"automated" but are done the old-fashioned way by the
students themselves. Of course, this would depend on
the age-groups of the students. :-)

I also believe that some of the algorithms could
produce interesting results in VPython; however, as I
indicated, I haven't had enough time to tinker around
with the possibilities myself. . . .

One more proposal: computer teachers can think about
hooking up with "traditional" art instructors and
using this stuff as the basis for projects joining
together high-tech with low-tech graphics. That was,
after all, my original goal when I was relating these
pictures to jewelry design.
