“Artsonia is the world’s largest collection of student art, published by teachers and students from around the world. Parents and family can view the art online, leave comments and order keepsakes featuring the artwork.”
At The O’Brien Academy, Ms. Osborne uses this program to display each student’s artwork in an online portfolio. Students’ families, even those who live far away, as well as the public, can view these portfolios and leave positive, uplifting comments for the students to see. This helps the students to feel successful and confident in their art abilities. All you have to do is search the name of the school, and you’re able to see all the projects completed by students that year!
Another really cool aspect of Artsonia is that family members or friends can purchase merchandise with images of their student’s art on it! Twenty percent of the profits from merchandise sales go towards art supplies and other engaging activities for OBA students to complete during art class or reward period at the end of the day. Please support the art program at The O’Brien Academy by visiting our Artsonia page and checking out all the awesome work our students are creating!
