As a current art student I can tell you that charcoal is still a well used medium even more so than pencil. Even as a photography student I had to take Drawing I and Figure Drawing before I could much of anything else.
Also, at my school Photo I is still nearly all darkroom work. The other students still seem enthusiastic about it. Film will survive.
