• In the Gallery, students become curators of their own art collections. They explore the ArtSite Museum, choose a work of art, and then write their own description. They can also contribute new Gallery pages with up to 4 images. Search the Gallery by collection, class, and student.
• In the Portfolio, students display their studio art and writing. Students can upload their art or teachers can start pages for them. Students can link their Portfolios from previous years and different classes. At the end of each year, teachers can save the best Portfolio pages to share with new students.
Customize the Portfolio search page with a featured artwork. Search the Portfolio by academic year, class, and student.
• With the ArtBlog, teachers and students can post comments on Gallery and Portfolio pages, forming an exchange of ideas. Teachers approve all comments before they are made public and can turn the blog on or off for each class.

ArtSearch starts you off with a variety of worldwide museum websites and art resources. Teachers can add any number of links to web sites and videos organized by their own search titles. They can also delete or change the included search titles and weblinks. Teachers can turn ArtSearch web browsing on or off for each class.
