One of the best features on Artsonia is the way families come together to celebrate the creativity of a young artist. Joining fan clubs, signing the guestbook, surprising a child with a keepsake featuring his/her artwork – all are ways that families and friends encourage their young artists. However, we’ve noticed that thousands of Artsonia artists don’t have any fan club members, not even a parent! So, we have a quick tip for teachers, on how to try and get more parents registered on Artsonia!
First – Consider your own busy schedule. If you’re waiting for some new art supplies to hit the shelf, would you rather visit your favorite store daily to hunt around for the items, or just get an email that tells you the exact products you’re looking for are available?
Now, consider the parents at your school. If they want to see their children’s artwork, would they prefer to browse to Artsonia, search on their child’s name and then look to see if any new artwork is published yet…Or, would they prefer to simply get an email that announces new artwork in the gallery so they can click one link and see the masterpiece?
Everybody wants convenience, right?
