SWITLIK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS SHARE THEIR ARTWORK WITH THE WORLD! Jackson, NJ -- Move Over Famous Artists! Switlik Elementary School artists are taking over the spotlight! Maria Martinez, the school's Art Teacher, has teamed up with Artsonia, www.artsonia.com -- the world's largest online kid's art museum -- to display the students' artwork. Anyone can view the school gallery online at: www.artsonia.com/schools/switlik1. Visitors can browse the artwork in the school gallery by grade level, or by specific exhibits. Switlik Elementary School students join thousands of students from over 100 countries whose artwork is showcased on Artsonia.
"This program is a wonderful way to get parents and family members more involved in Art Education," said Maria Martinez. All of Artsonia's artwork (nearly 10 million and counting!) are viewable online, and any teacher or parent can create an online art gallery for their child or school. Artsonia provides several online features such as fan clubs and personal guestbooks, as a way for families to encourage the creativity and imaginations of their young artists. In addition, family members can purchase keepsakes imprinted with the child's artwork, with Artsonia donating 15 percent of their annual product revenue back to school art programs. Headquartered in Gurnee, Ill., Artsonia was established in 2000 as an online kid's art museum providing free, educational resources for kids, families and schools to create art projects. Since its inception, Artsonia continues to integrate technology in the classroom, develop multi-cultural understanding through art and increase family involvement in children's education.
