Prairie Vale students share artwork with the world

Deer Creek — Move over famous artists, Deer Creek Edmond Prairie Vale Elementary School artists are taking over the spotlight.

Denise Austin, the school’s art teacher, has teamed up with Artsonia, www.artsonia.com — the world’s largest online children’s art museum — to display the students’ artwork.

Anyone can view the school gallery online at: www.artsonia.com/schools/PrairieVale1. Visitors can browse the artwork in the school gallery by grade level or by specific exhibits. Prairie Vale Elementary School students join thousands of students from more than 130 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 Principal Michelle Anderson.

All of Artsonia’s artwork (12 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 guest books, 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.

Headquartering in Gurnee, Ill., Artsonia was established in 2000 as an online children’s art museum providing free, educational resources for children, 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.
