Artsonia (Throughout the school year)

Chair - Kelly Shipman, Kulchitt (Toy) Vilaichitt, Ling Yeh

ACS will again be partnering with Artsonia (, the largest online student art museum, showcasing artwork from thousands of schools around the world. Artwork created by ACS students at school is photographed and uploaded to the Artsonia website. Once on the website, family and friends can view and purchase a variety of exciting products showcasing the children's artwork. Volunteers help with communicating with parents, creating awareness, photographing, editing, and uploading the artwork. Note that because the artwork must be photographed after it is created by the students, but before it is taken home, the number of volunteer hours available will vary week to week, but many volunteers are needed throughout the school year. Instruction is provided, but volunteers for photography must have their own digital SLR camera.
