Artsonia is an online art museum for students. Parents can purchase items with their student's image, such as mugs, t shirts, etc. Our art program would receive 15% of all purchases.
How does it work? Art teachers choose one or two projects per year (or more) and post each student's artwork. The students would be assigned a number to maintain privacy. Parents are then able to log into Artsonia and view their child's artwork and select a customized keepsake. You can view options here.
Please take a quick moment to share your thoughts in the poll below. I would happily participate in Artsonia if an interest is indicated.
Are you interested in purchasing keepsakes with your student's artwork from Artsonia?
