Dear parents,

Students in 4th and 5th grade have uploaded their Art Class creations to make sharing artwork with YOU easier! Scan the Parent Info QR code to sign up, ask your child for their username (which is their first and last name with no spaces, followed by a number) and check out their portfolio page which includes their artist’s statement about each titled work. You can “like” their artwork by giving them a bubble and offer encouragement with a comment! District approved safeguards privacy and content. For more site information scan the Creatubbles Site QR code. We hope you enjoy this new way of sharing!

Artfully yours,

Melody McKee

Art Specialist, Bethany Elementary
