My Mom is an artist, so art has always been an important part of my life. Her beautiful artwork covered the walls of our home and she was always up for an art project. While I didn’t get any of her artistic talent, I still enjoy trying to paint and be creative in other ways. Now, my Mom is helping instill a love of art in my daughters and in the children she teaches art to at a local studio. Keeping art programs in schools and after-school programs is important to me, so I am thrilled to be a part of the Blick Art Room Aid initiative. Join me for a Twitter Party to learn more!
What: 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.
Want to learn more? Join this Twitter Party to find out how you can support art education, make sure art continues to play a role in your children’s lives, and spread the word about Art Room Aid in your community. We’ll be discussing projects you can do with your own kids, and sharing sources of inspiration.
