From Mrs. Broder and the Art Room

May and June are full of GREAT reasons to give gifts. Mother's Day, Father's Day, end of school, or just getting prepared for the holiday season ahead of time. Choose from dozens of different items: mugs, water bottles, t-shirts, sketchbooks, notecards just to name a few. Personalize them with your child's artwork, and voila you have an original keepsake gift! Any way you slice it, personalized artwork is a truly unique gift. And as an added bonus, this is a school fundraiser and the Ward School Art Program receives 20% of each sale.


We are adding new art every week. So check your child's page, and encourage friends and family members to support Ward, and your budding artist, by buying Artsonia products for all of their gift-giving occasions. If you have any questions about the program, feel free to ask Lena, Stacy, Mindy, or Mrs. Broder, or call Artsonia directly, 1 (800) 869-9974.


Thanks again for your support.
