The Art Department - Artsonia

Artsonia is an online student gallery that Ms. Blanc uses to display student artwork and create student digital portfolios. Students write about their artwork and have “fans” (usually family members and friends). Fans can comment on their work. Items with the students artwork can be purchased through the website and a portion of the cost goes back into the Art Department for purchasing items that we usually run out of at the end of the year.
