Teachers and students can upload original works of art on the Artsonia Kids Art Museum and then give and receive feedback. Students can join classes by scanning a teacher-generated QR code and begin uploading their work immediately. Teachers can view individual works or see multiple projects at a glance.
From within the teacher section of Artsonia, teachers can download high-resolution images of their students’ work for use on a class website or in a slideshow. Adding an artist statement to each piece offers cross-curricular connections by inviting students to explain their art and talk about their artistic process. Family members can order reasonably priced memorabilia with students’ artwork on them; the school gets 20 percent of each sale to put toward art supplies. The app is available for iOS or Android devices. Cost: Free app

Engineers and artists are a lot alike when they study the effects of forces on something they are designing.
