The time has come and we are back to school! I am sure you are as excited as I am to jump right in, but first there are a few things I would like to let you know about.
First, I would like to recommend every student have an ART SMOCK. This could be as simple as an old t-shirt or an apron, the important thing is that it covers the clothing to make sure the kids look as good leaving the room as they did coming in.
Secondly, as students begin making their artwork I would like to invite you to view your child/children’s work online through the use of the Artsonia.com website. Through Artsonia you can view pictures I upload as well as upload your own to build an online portfolio for each budding artist.
IMPORTANT: In the past I was able to grant permission for your child’s artwork to be published through a written permission slip from you, HOWEVER, this year the Artsonia.com site requires the PARENTS/GUARDIANS to create and online account and give permission online before I can upload any artwork. If you are new to Artsonia and wish to participate please create an account for your child as soon as possible using the information that was stapled to the "Beginning of the Year" letter that went home in your child's folder, if your child already has an account with me, please make sure you have activated it. If you need the information to activate your existing account please email me and I will get it to ASAP.
