Over the last few years we have shared your children’s artwork with you through an online app called Artsonia. This academic year we say goodbye to Artsonia as the Visual Arts department join the rest of the school in using a new digital portfolio platform called Seesaw. There are many benefits to this new way of communicating with you.
- Rather than the teachers choosing what to upload the students will have more of an input. It will become a portfolio of their learning journey rather than just focusing on finished products.
- As well as photos of artwork we will up able to add video and voice record. The children can annotate their work and there is also an inbuilt drawing tool.
- As each homeroom and other specialists will also be using Seesaw, this will streamline our communication with you.
If you are a returning family you will be able access your child’s Artsonia account. To download a digital copy of the artworks you:
Login. Click on Edit Past Art. Click on the art. Click the “download image” link to save it to your computer or device.
We are really looking forward to showing you what Seesaw can do and if you have any questions or queries we are here to help.
