Our school is a member of Artsonia.com, an online student art museum. Artsonia manages school art galleries in a safe and educational manner, developing students' pride and self-esteem and involving parents and relatives in student arts education. You can view your student's art work online by visiting www.artsonia.com and entering your student's screenname and security key. The screenname and security key were sent home on the Artsonia permission slip. If you need the screenname and security key, I would be happy to provide it for you. Artwork will be put on the website as we create it! Through Artsonia you are also able to purchase items with your artist's masterpiece on them. A portion of your purchase comes directly back to the Dower art program. We use that money to buy supplies for our program. Parents - Here are some ideas to get your students talking about the art room:We will be learning about optical illusions:*What is an optical illusion?*How did you create an optical illusion?Kindergarten/1st grade have been working on music with rhythm sticks.Ask your child to sing one of our rhythm stick songs and show you how to tap with their imaginary sticks (their fingers).
