As a former teacher, I know first hand how hard it is to get your hands on all the classroom materials you need. Each year, I spent quite a bit of money (no, I never actually kept track – it would have been too depressing!) rounding out my classroom supplies. I can only imagine how much more an art teacher goes through!! That’s why I was so excited to get involved with this program with Blick Art Materials!!
Blick has created Art Room Aid to help art teachers all over the country get the materials they need to help create the next generation of artists and folks who appreciate art. Be sure to join in with tomorrow’s Twitter party to learn more about this great project. And stop back often as I will be working with a special guest to take Art Room Aid for a test drive!!
#BlickARA Twitter party details
Do you believe art is an essential part of your child’s education? Then you already know how important art education is — and how schools are struggling to keep their art programs alive. That’s where Art Room Aid can help! A program of Blick Art Materials, Art Room Aid is helping teachers across the country enlist the aid of parents, families, friends, and other art advocates to fund their art projects and keep creative learning going.
