Artsonia: Important Questions and Answers
When deciding whether to participate in Artsonia, there are many questions that are commonly asked. Below are the most popular ones.
Do teachers need to get parental permission to publish their students' artwork?
Yes. Parents need to register to provide permission for their child’s artwork to be displayed on the public gallery. Artsonia offers several simple tools to assist teachers in the parent registration process. Note: The permission given when parents register on Artsonia is applicable for the tenure of the student’s attendance at the school, so once the parent gives permission, the teacher can continue to build the student digital portfolio in future school years.
How do you ensure privacy for young students?
On the Artsonia website, each student is identified only by a “screenname” which is usually the student's first name and number (e.g., Sarah22). Last names are not publicly posted on the website. Additionally, all comments are pre-approved by the registered parent before being posted for the artist, and all artist statements are approved by the teacher prior to being posted.
Who owns the copyright of the artwork submitted?
Artists retain ownership of their artwork. However, when the parent registers on our website, they grant Artsonia the right and license to, among other things, publish the artwork in the museum, on merchandise, and on Artsonia promotional material. Artsonia will always remove any artwork from its website upon request. For full details, see our Terms and Conditions at Artsonia.com/terms.asp.
