Blick Art Materials
Art and the materials students use to create it can inspire, build self-esteem, and lead to personal empowerment, but not every child and
every school has access to these resources. That’s why Blick supports
organizations and programs like DonorsChoose.org and Youth Art Month.
We sponsor National Art Education Association programs and actively
work with ACMI on product safety initiatives. What’s more, the free lesson plans in our catalogs and at DickBlick.com will spark your students’
imaginations and raise awareness of the world around them. Visit us
online or call (800) 447-8192 to read about other ways Blick gives back!
