#BlickARA Twitter Party to Raise Money for School Art Materials

I have yet to write a post about The Boy's current school but it's truly a special place. And I'm excited to be a part of this program to help the teachers at The Boy's school raise money for art materials. Art is critical for all students - especially kids with special needs. They help imagination, fine motor skills, planning, socialization and so much more. But supplies can get expensive and budgets are constantly being cut. Too often, teachers are digging into their own pockets to purchase the supplies they need. And this is where Blick Art Materials wants to help.
