There is a reminder that we have new art work in our Artsonia galleries so please have a look. Become a “fan” of your friends so that they can win prizes and you can see their regular updates. You can upload any artwork you like so if you create work at home feel free to upload it or bring it in and I will add it to your gallery. http://www.artsonia.com/schools/school.asp?id=141244

I will occasionally give you updates so you don’t feel like you are missing out.
