Over the past few weeks I have been inputting parent email addresses into my Artsonia account. Please visit your child’s gallery page to make sure that your email address is confirmed. If you see the word, “unconfirmed” next to one of the members in your child’s fan club, please confirm your email address to ensure that you will be notified each time your child has a newly published work of art uploaded.
Be sure to write down the password that you create for your Artsonia account. You will need to use your password when you log in to approve comments that may be sent to your budding artist. You may also wish to access your account to upload artwork that your artist creates at home! Once you log in, click “upload new artwork” and participate in helping to make your child’s art gallery grow.
Please remember to send compliments using the “Comment” feature on your child’s gallery page. Entering web comments is a free and easy way to encourage your artist to always do his or her very best work in art class. Celebrating an artist’s achievements by posting comments can also help in developing pride and self-esteem!
Have you noticed the new Facebook and Twitter buttons on your child’s gallery page? Some students have already shared that their parents have been posting their artwork on Facebook and Twitter! Yesterday, a student shared that he was so excited to receive two comments from two of his mom’s co-workers! Sharing your child’s artwork online may be a wonderful way to help your child’s fan club and comment list to grow!
You may also be interested in purchasing gift items such as t-shirts, keychains, mugs, stickers, and more in the “Gift Store”! Artsonia donates 15% of all purchases back to our art program so that I could purchase more supplies for our artists. Click on the piggy bank icon in your child’s gallery to access the Gift Store.
I hope that you will enjoy participating with Artsonia and celebrating your child’s creative accomplishments! My goal is to upload as much artwork as time permits. Please understand that there is no time built into the school day for me to photograph and upload artwork, and all of this work takes place during my lunch time and my personal time after school hours. The process is very time consuming, however, I will do the best I can to make sure that all students at B.A. have artwork published.
