ARTSONIA - Parents YOU can publish your child's artwork!

Be on the LOOK OUT for HOT GREEN Artsonia Notices. Artsonia is giving YOU the power to upload your child’s artwork. One of the biggest requests I hear each year is “When will my child have another piece of artwork published?” or “Would you please publish more of my child’s artwork?” It is as EASY as 1,2, 3…Go to and find out how! I encourage you to give this a try as artwork begins to come home at the end of the year.
