If you've been around here or Bigger Picture Blogs for awhile, you know that creating and fostering creativity is one of my passions!
And not just for adults -- but for kids, too!
I'm working on an exciting project with The Motherhood and DickBlick to help support art projects at our children's schools!
As lovers of all things creative, we want our children to be inspired to express themselves through art -- be it writing, drawing, painting, crafting, photography or any other medium! This partnership is intended to bring light to DickBlick's awesome program, Art Room Aid, where teachers across the country can enlist help from parents, families, friends and other art advocates to fund the art projects in their classrooms and keep our children engaging creatively!
If you're interested in bringing Art Room Aid to your child's school, join us for a Twitter party to learn more about the program as well as discuss projects you can do with the kiddos!
