Artsonia: unit 2 favorites are uploading now!

Our Artsonia site is really taking off! We started it a couple of months ago when our artroom iPads arrived and we are already ranked the #2 site in the state, thanks to parent support by sharing, creating fan clubs, and leaving comments.
Our goal for this year, as we learn the process, is for each child to upload one favorite work per nine week period. We are currently in the process of uploading works for unit 2, as we have two weeks left and most of the classes are still in the midst of lengthy clay and printmaking activities.
There are a number of wonderful products available on the site which would make great gifts for any holiday - Christmas, Valentine's Day, Mothers/Fathers day - so please keep Artsonia in mind and we receive a portion of the profit for our artroom needs. See shipping deadlines at the bottom of post.

Here are some screen shots of our Dolvin Artsonia gallery if you haven't checked it out yet!

Some examples of the student work...

And I think my favorite part of all are the comments by family members, what terrific feedback! We have over 200 comments so far.


  1. I am very impressed by the number of fan club members you already have on your Artsonia account. This is the area that I struggle with in both of my schools. What did you do that inspired families to participate?

    1. When I sent in the spreadsheet of student names to Artsonia, we included the emails on file with the school so parents could be notified. I believe they are notified by email whenever a new piece is uploaded. Also, just before Thanksgiving I printed out reminder slips for the kids who still needed their account activated. Once parents are on board, then they can link other family members to create the fan clubs.


Comments are very appreciated - thanks for stopping by!
