Benefits of the online art gallery:


Each year, thousands of art teachers nationwide showcase their students’ artwork online at Artsonia, the world’s largest online student art museum, offers a free, educational program to schools, teachers and parents. This document describes the school and teacher benefits of participating in Artsonia.


Participating in Artsonia provides many benefits to schools, teachers, students and parents:

Boost students’ pride and self esteem: Repeatedly, participating teachers tell us about the increased pride and self esteem their students feel after participating in Artsonia. Viewing their own creations in an online museum, students are putting forth extra effort in the art room, knowing it will be posted for all their friends and family to appreciate.


Increase parental and family involvement in students’ education: Parents and family members take a much more active role in their child’s art education by viewing the artwork online and joining the child’s fan club. Teachers tell us this feedback from family, especially relatives who may not live nearby, is priceless in the development of the child’s artistic confidence.


Financial support for art program: After the student artwork is published online, the parents and family may purchase keepsakes from the museum with the child’s artwork imprinted on it, and 20% of the revenue is commissioned back to the school art program. Depending on the amount of promotion the teacher invests and the demographic of family members, this support could range from hundreds to thousands of dollars for additional equipment / art supplies for the classroom.


Integrate technology into the classroom: Teachers and students engage in classroom art projects, and publish their artwork in an online art gallery. The technical literacy of viewing artwork online, tracking artists own statistics online, leaving other comments for friends, etc, provides a technology experience for students that stays within a safe, educational environment*.


School rankings and honors for art program: Each year, Artsonia highlights and honors top participating schools and art programs. The awards are based on both technology integration and community involvement. Other administrators tell us this provides a very tangible statistic to highlight to their local community about the richness of their art program.


Enrichment of school art program: Participating teachers can share and post lesson plans, increasing the quality of the art lessons provided by their school. This teacher resource keeps the art program on the cutting edge of quality cross-curriculum art projects.


Parents…be on the look out for the permission form for Artsonia. If you have already filled one out you will not have to fill it out again.

Art Philosophy

A fine arts education is a vital part of the curriculum for Brevard County students. Involvement in the arts is all inclusive, the arts encompass an entire body of knowledge with a distinct vocabulary which transcends time, age and ethnicity. Engaging our students in multiple hands-on art experiences allows them to contribute to society, celebrate culture and develop natural talent.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back! It’s going to be a great year in art education. Students at Manatee Elementary receive art instruction every week. All lessons are grade level specific and are aligned with the Florida Sunshine State Standards and Brevard County Visual Arts curriculum. Students work with a variety of media to develop their skills of creative problem solving, artistic perception and expression. Students also learn about different artists and the variety of ways artists express themselves. The objectives of these lessons cover many aspects of art education including art vocabulary, art expression and communication and an understanding of the role of the arts throughout history. It is my goal for every child to find the artist that lies within and to build awareness of self-expression through imaginative and inventive lessons.
