Hey Naomi - good to see you making a start, but there is a BIG question at the heart of your introduction that you're not even dealing with yet - and it's vital that you do deal with it. What do you mean by 'Computer Arts'? Are you talking about computer graphics/digital painting/computers & fine art or what? The very FIRST thing your essay will need to do is be very clear about its definition of Computer Arts - what it means, what it doesn't mean. At the moment, you're using a big flabby phrase which means different things to different people - what do you mean by 'Computer Arts'? Give me a definition!
