1/11/13: Blick Art Materials Twitter Party - Support Art Room Aid

I love being involved in my son and daughter's school.  In fact I am President of our PTO and I run the Art Show every year.  I was never very artistic and have made sure to do lots of crafts with my kids to foster their desire to be creative.  
Did you know that schools are struggling to keep their art programs alive? I wanted to let you know about a wonderful organization that is helping provide Art Room materials.  
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.  
There is Twitter Party coming up that I hope you can join me at.  You can learn more on how you can support art education and spread the word about Art Room Aid in your community.  The party will include discussion of projects you can do with your own kids, and share sources of inspiration.  Plus there are prizes!
