Join Artsonia for the Opportunity to Purchase Quality Keepsake Items with Your Child’s Artwork

Artsonia is an exciting online digital art gallery that provides parents with access to their student’s artwork throughout the year.  In addition to viewing your child’s artwork, Artsonia offers families and friends opportunities to purchase quality keepsake items that earn money for Flint Hill  – great for the holidays!  For your child to participate in Artsonia, you first need to grant permission for the school to provide your email to Artsonia by using this online form.  After you have granted permission, you will receive an email from Artsonia to activate your child’s account.  Once the account is activated, parents can start viewing artwork as it is posted, and share it with family and friends!  For more information on Artsonia, please contact Ms. McAlister at sdmcalister@fcps.edu.
