ARTSONIA-Kansas Online Student Art Gallery 

As we are having Learning Packets and eLearning, Kansas Art program has an opportunity to make things a little easier for you to be involved with your students art program. Along with being able to see your students artwork online, it is now easier to turn in your students work, through Artsonia in this time if there are Stay at Home orders.  You are also welcome to post any other artwork online that your children have done outside of class in the Anytime Art From Home gallery. This is an ongoing student art gallery that is posted indefinitely and can be referred back to at anytime and shared to your family and friends. Below there is a QR code to scan and an alpha code (if you do not wish to use the QR code) to be able to easily take a photo of your child's work from your phone and upload that to the project gallery that it goes with .  It will be reviewed, counted as turned in/graded and then posted to the school gallery. Easy Peasy!
