As I’ve shared with you before, my son Michael is an art student. Ever since he was a toddler, he’s displayed a gifting in art. We find this very fascinating because his abilities are not inherited from his parents. It’s just the way he’s wired.
I might have shared this picture with you before, but I’m going to share it with you again. It’s my very favorite drawing of Michael’s.
So, to say that we support funding for art in the schools is an understatement. Sadly, many programs such as art are being chipped away or eliminated all together due to budget cuts.
It’s a very sad thing.
Blick Art Materials is offering up a new program to help. It’s called Art Room Aid and it’s helping teachers across the country to enlist the aid of parents, families, friends and other art advocates to fund art projects and keep creative learning growing.
If you would like to learn more about this program, there is going to be a Twitter party on January 16th at 2:00pm ET. At the party you can learn more about how to support art education, make sure art continues to play a role in your children’s lives and how Art Room Aid can help you in this endeavor.
During the Twitter party, five prizes of Blick gift coupons will be given away ranging from $25 to $75!! To participate, follow the hashtag #BlickARA and the hosts @TheMotherhood @CooperMunroe @EmilyMcKhann who are the hosts of the Twitter party.

Michael and I are working with Blick and The Motherhood to raise awareness for Art Room Aid. His school will receive art materials for our participation and I am being compensated for this post. I am donating half of my compensation towards art supplies for the school.
