What is Artsonia?

Artsonia is the largest student art museum in the world! Every child can have an online art gallery and keep their masterpieces in a digital portfolio!  It serves as a kids art museum where young artists and students display their art for other kids worldwide to view, and can also track their progress as an artist from preschool through grade 12.  Each student gets an individual site on Artsonia and that site can travel with them from school to school.  Your art teachers will periodically upload artwork onto Artsonia throughout the school year.  Parents can manage the site and also add friends and family members to each students’ fan club.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact your art teachers, Ms. Andrea (aheinz@unishanoi.org) & Ms. Emma (ehamilton@unishanoi.org).
