Provide digital tools for artistic expression and art exploration

High quality art education provides students with opportunities to create, perform, produce, present, respond, and connect as they learn to use art for the purposes of communication, creative self-expression, community engagement, and more.

Wixie is the perfect digital canvas for students "conceiving and developing artistic ideas and work." Students can use Wixie's tools for self-expression, to share their learning of art and artist exploration, as well as develop portfolios to demonstrate mastery and reflection on their own artistic journeys.
