WARD SCHOOL STUDENTS SHARE THEIR ARTWORK WITH THE WORLD!

Newton Centre, MA -- Move Over Famous Artists!  Ward School artists are taking over the spotlight!  Amy Broder, Ward's Art Teacher, has teamed up with Artsonia, www.artsonia.com -- the world's largest online kid's art museum -- to display your students' artwork.

Anyone can view the school gallery online at: www.artsonia.com/schools/JohnWard1. Visitors can browse the artwork in the school gallery by grade level, or by specific exhibits. John Ward students join thousands of students from over 130 countries whose artwork is showcased on Artsonia. "This program is a wonderful way to get parents and family members more involved in Art Education," said Amy Broder.

All of Artsonia's artwork (12 million and counting!) are viewable online, and any teacher or parent can create an online art gallery for their child or school. Artsonia provides several online features such as fan clubs and personal guestbooks, as a way for families to encourage the creativity and imaginations of their young artists. In addition, family members can purchase keepsakes imprinted with the child's artwork, with Artsonia donating 15 percent of their annual product revenue back to school art programs.

Headquartered in Gurnee, Ill., Artsonia was established in 2000 as an online kid's art museum providing free, educational resources for kids, families and schools to create art projects. Since its inception, Artsonia continues to integrate technology in the classroom, develop multi-cultural understanding through art and increase family involvement in children's education. To find out more, visit www.artsonia.com.

We are working on getting artwork up on the site, but not all students have completed projects.  On December 3rd you should have received an email from Artsonia asking you to confirm your parent registration with a password and login information. In order for artwork to be viewed, please follow the links in the email. If you have any questions, feel free to email Artsonia at info@artsonia.com, or call them toll-free at (800) 869-9974.

Enjoy!
