Spectrum student artists are taking their place in the artistic spotlight. Spectrum teacher Fran Alley has teamed up with Artsonia, which describes itself as the world's largest online kid's art museum, to display the students' artwork.
Spectrum is a semestered senior secondary alternative program. The primary goal of Spectrum is to provide students with an opportunity to complete grades 10, 11 and 12 in an alternative setting. Students have the opportunity to complete 5 courses each semester.
The Spectrum gallery can be viewed here: www.artsonia.com/schools/SpectrumCentre1. Visitors can browse the artwork in the school gallery by grade level, or by specific exhibits. Spectrum students have joined thousands of other students from over 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 Alley.
All of Artsonia's artwork (20 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 guestbooks, as a way for families to encourage the creativity and imaginations of their young artists.
