I am looking forward to the partnership between Tales of the Multi-Tasking Mom and Blick Art as well as both my daughter’s art teachers to promote the Blick Art Art Room Aid initiative. As most of you would have heard through the news or through personal experience at your kids’ schools, a lot of schools or arts programs catering to education program are struggling to keep their art programs alive. This is where Blick Art’s Art Room Aid can help! It is a program that seeks to, and 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? A group of bloggers and I are participating in a Twitter Party to share the word on 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. I am also looking forward to sharing the two very different, but very relevant projects that both my daughter’s teachers have so graciously agreed to work on that in turn, takes the program to the next level by giving back to the community.
When: Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2 p.m. ET
Where: We’ll be on Twitter – follow the #BlickARA hashtag to track the conversation. See this Twtvite for more info and to RSVP: http://twtvite.com/BlickARA
Prizes: We will give away five total prizes - two $25 Blick gift coupons, two $50 Blick gift coupons, and one $75 Blick gift coupon.
