Help Your Child’s Art Teacher w Blick Art Room Aid #BlickARA

How often does your child go to art class at school? Over at my daughter’s elementary school, she only goes to art once a week. That’s it. Creativity is a very important skill for kids and making art (or music or creative play) helps them develop that skill. With continuous budget cuts to school systems nationwide, it’s even more important that parents and the community help support our children’s art teachers.

That’s why I’m excited to be a panelist tomorrow at Blick Art Materials’ Art Room Aid Twitter party. Join me at the party tomorrow to learn how you can help fund art teachers’ projects and encourage children to use their creativity. Plus you can win gift certificates to Blick Art Materials. You can purchase art supplies for yourself or donate them to an art teacher.
Here’s more info about the party:
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.
