Have you visited your Artsonia Gallery yet this year?  I've started to upload artwork and our B.A. Gallery is looking great!  We have so many talented artists in our school and it's wonderful to be able to showcase student work online!  

Some students have already begun to write and post "Artist Statements" about their artwork to let viewers know a little bit about what they were thinking when they were creating their artwork. One of the latest artist statements was written by Samantha (see pic above).  It is obvious that Samantha reflected about her work and the creative choices she made. She also shared how this work of art makes her feel.   

If you would like to tell the world more about your artwork, please do!  Ask your parents to visit your gallery.  Here is the link to our B.A. Gallery  http://www.artsonia.com/schools/school.asp?id=1620

Once you are on your gallery page, your parents should click the yellow box under your artwork that looks like this:


They will need to click "Click Here" and sign in with the email and password they used to activate their account.  Parents, if you do not remember the password you created, please call Artsonia during work hours at 1-(800)-869-9974  
Artsonia will be happy to retrieve your information for you.  

After you are logged in, students can type and post their artist statements!  I'm looking forward to reading what you all have to say about your artwork!  
 
 
3rd Graders Used our iPads to add their artist statements about their artwork in their online Artsonia galleries.  They found their work in an online Artsonia form, typed their artist statements, and submitted their statements.  I reviewed their statements on the form and approved them. 
Having iPads makes it so much easier for us to incorporate writing, communication, publishing work, and 21st century skills into our units of study.
