For the past several years I have been creating online student art portfolios using Artsonia.com.  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 (www.artsonia.com 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.

1st grade- Winter Trees: artists are learning about cool colors and how that can affect the mood of a painting, and are creating a painting of a winter tree using a variety of art making techniques. 

 

2nd grade- Map Making: artists are studying map making, and will create a map of a real or imaginary place.
