New Installations Up Since Quarantine!

With quarantine and distant learning this Spring, I am especially proud to present new installations that were worked on during that time and installed over the summer to beautify Berlin High School.  Please congratulate these students on a job well done 🙂 – Mrs. Miller

Artsonia – Online Student Gallery!

This school year, the Berlin High School Art Department introduced, a website to help students build their personal portfolios. Artsonia is known as the world’s largest online student gallery and has been around for 20 years!

To find the Berlin High School page, type our name into their main search bar.

Students upload their final artworks as part of their ongoing portfolio. In doing so, they learn artistic behaviors such as how to photograph their artwork and write an artist statement. This supports our National Core Art Standards.

Family, friends and the Berlin community can then view the artwork online, leave comments, and order keepsakes featuring the artwork! Each keepsake order is also a fundraiser that helps support Berlin High School Art Department.

The Artsonia Giftshop provides unique opportunities for gift giving with your student’s work on it!

The neat thing is this portfolio follows them throughout their career at Berlin Public Schools K-12. Another thing we like about it, is that Artsonia is committed to making sure their website is COPPA and FERPA compliant, respecting all student/child privacy laws. Each parent/guardian has the opportunity to make their student’s artwork public or private based on preference.

Some Digital Photography artworks in our gallery…

Due to our shift to Distance Learning this semester as a result of COVID-19, in lieu of a K-12 District Art Show at New Britain Museum we want to share our student works with you off our BHS Artsonia Page. Each section is organized by class, and then assignment, and covers all of the 2019-2020 school year.

The button on the right of each window allows you to view the gallery as a slideshow!
When clicking on a student work, you have the opportunity to be part of their fan club, comment on their work, which sends a message to their email, as well as nominate them for awards!

The pandemic didn’t stop Berlin High School students from making art! We’re proud of our creative community in Berlin and hope you’ll join us in celebrating all their hard work and achievements this school year.
