UPDATE: Blick said farewell to the Art Room Aid program 🙁 

I mentioned before about the Blick Art Room Aid program but I wanted to talk more in detail for those of you that didn’t make it to the twitter party. Art is such an important part of our lives. Some people don’t believe this but you can release your creativity along with your children’s. Children need art in their school’s and when it’s taken from there classes outside of the school.

I’m so proud that my daughter’s love art. They get that from my Mother. She is a fantastic artist. She is a sculptor but works with lots of media. She goes around teaching art classes to adults, children and those with special needs as well. The work she does gets little fingers in the clay creating works of art that they can be proud of. But it takes a lot of supplies to keep her classes up and running. She not only travels to these locations to teach she brings all the supplies. The small fee per student only covers so much.

297810_293600813995215_743707268_nThat’s where Blick’s Art Room Aid comes in. Teachers can create a project profile and add the supplies they need for their class. Whether is paintbrushes, clay or colored pencils. If you’re an art educator, Art Room Aid provides the tools to easily share your dreams and funding needs without complicated applications or fees that take away from contributions. If you’re an arts advocate you can quickly locate a project that resonates with you and make a high-quality contribution that will go directly to a project in need.

It’s such a fantastic program that I truly believe in. I’d love it if you could visit my Mother’s page to read her story and how she helps her students. You can even donate to her supple list. Blick will apply the money for her to purchase the supplies on her list.  My Mother is an artist full time. She loves being able to do it full time but it takes a lot to stay afloat.

If you know a local teacher that could use the Blick Art Room Aid program please share it with them. It’s a great way to keep art in schools by helping the one thing that breaks the program. The budget.

  1. Amazing program, thankfully we do still have art in our elementary schools even if it is once a week. It was ALWAYS my favorite class when I was young.

  2. What a cool concept! We did some stuff with Blick last year at an event, and they kids had a blast. They had a HUGE art area set up with all sorts of materials to use. They really are a great organization.
