Moody Seascapes Kid Art & Art Room Aid Follow-Up

Aliki’s Violent Seascape

Back in February, I worked with Sophia’s art teacher to set up a project on Art Room Aid, and help fund her second grade class art lesson about Winslow Homer’s moody seascapes. Art Room Aid is a program by Blick Art Materials that 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. Any instructor who teaches art can participate.

Estaban’s Excited Seascape

Both Ms. Ward and I were amazed that her project was funded in only a few weeks! Not only that, parents approached her in person and offered donations for the project. A few weeks ago, she shared the result of the class project. All the artwork in this post are done by second graders!

Nelson’s Mad Seascape

This is our first time setting up a project page on Art Room Aid. We’ve had such a great experience with it, I hope to be able to do it again next school year. Art is so important for our children’s education, and I want to make sure art teachers have the resources to create a rich experience for their students.

I hope you’ll check it the program for your child’s school!
