Lots of events to celebrate the arts happened in the Ranger Lair this week...
Monday we sent off our creative entries into the Doodle 4 Google Contest. Congratulations and good luck to all our Rangers for putting their best effort into their creative logo designs.
We celebrated Youth Art Month with our CCISD District Art Show held at the Clear Lake Arts Alliance Center in Nasau Bay! The students loved seeing their art on display and one student said "Ms K this is the best day of my life!"
Our Friday Monthly Spirit Day Celebrated the Arts and all the grade levels had arts themed cheers in support of Youth Art Month and Music in Our Schools Month!
I put together a video to share with the students that highlighted some of the activities we have done in the last year:
Also, this week parents have been a buzz about the new Artsonia app that came out this week and are really loving having their child's artwork and gallery at their fingertips for easy brag moments! If you have not see the app do check it out! Not only can you see your child's art work on the go but you can easily take a photo of their creations at home and add to their personal gallery!
PARENTS its FREE!
No more worrying about throwing away your child's artwork. Publish it into a permanent archive of your child's artwork on this free kids online art museum. This app enables parents to take photos of their child's artwork and upload it to their child's online art gallery on Artsonia.com. Once the artwork is published on Artsonia, child artists can enter contests, family members can leave comments for the artist and order keepsakes with their child's artwork on it. Prior to using this app, parents must create an account at www.artsonia.com.
COMING SOON: In the coming updates for the app, Parents, Teachers and Visitors will be able to browse artwork, leave comments for artists, and even order keepsakes with the artwork on it. Stay tuned!
In closure I want to share a little bit of joy from our Arts Spirit Day, guaranteed to leave you smiling!
Congratulations to Reese for her NYC debut! Her art work was shown on the Big Screen in NYC on March 2, 2012
