For the past several years I have been creating online student art portfolios using  Artsonia manages student art portfolios in a safe and educational manner, developing students’ pride and self-esteem, and involving parents and relatives in arts education. We need your permission to post a digital portfolio of your child’s artwork. Feel free to contact Mr. Kloser or Artsonia ( or 1-800-869-9974) to get your student’s code to view their digital portfolio, and/or make their art visible to the public.
