Artsonia is a site that has been around for a while. In fact, I thought I had written about it before, but a search of my archives tells me that I haven’t. Artsonia is a site designed for students to share their art work in public galleries. Students and teachers can indicate their school’s name when they upload their artwork. Parents and other family members can search Artsonia by school name to find their children’s artwork. Then, if they’re so inclined, parents can purchase things like coffee mugs, aprons, tee-shirts, and other trinkets with their child’s artwork on it. 15% of purchases go to the child’s school.
