Teachers are always looking for ways to make assignments authentic and relevant to their students. At Artsonia, students and teachers can upload and share student artwork and digital pictures to be seen internationally in this online art museum…and perhaps do some fund-raising at the same time!

Get a free account, share the web address with parents, and they can not only view their students’ creations online, but they can also order items through the Artsonia gift shop made with their students’ artwork. Schools earn 15% when parents purchase custom keepsakes with their child’s artwork. Products range from note cards to shirts, cutting boards to mousepads and bumper stickers to key chains….all made from the uploaded student work.

The site also offers lesson plans organized by grade level, media type, and subject areas across the curriculum.

My favorite feature on this site is the Mini-Dictionary Maker. Students can enter a personalized group of words and generate their own dictionaries. Other site features include games, a quiz-maker and lesson ideas.
