The AASL Best Website Committee described Creatubbles as,
You might think of Creatubbles as a kind of Facebook for young artists. A students create 2D or 3D art or even audio or video. Then he or she, or (if under 13) his teacher, librarian or parent, takes a photo and uploads the creation.
Other people can view the art and, if registered, comment and add "like" bubbles. Anyone can view the site, but art contributions are intended for 2 to 15 year-olds.
As you can see Creatubbles has a lot to offer and this is one I would definitely check out as we start a new school year.

When I used this with students, they loved how they could keep a portfolio of their work with Creatubbles and share it with friends, teachers and their family. They enjoyed looking at others work and commenting on it too.
And I loved that Creatubbles was a safe, social platform for my students that gave me the opportunity to have them share their work in a safe place, comment, receive feedback and view others work from around the world.
Creatubbles has created The Art Teacher Forum by Creatubbles Facebook Group to collaborate and get ideas from others around the world. This is super helpful to art teachers but also to us as librarians and teachers too.
