http://ArtRoomAid.com Like many schools across the country, Alameda Elementary School terminated its formal art education program because of budget cuts. If it weren't for Miss Rider and Art Room Aid, the school wouldn't have an art program today.
Miss Rider is a kindergarten teacher with a background in art who understands that art is essential to education. She uses the time that she would otherwise use to prepare for her regular kindergarten classes to teach art throughout the school. "Visual art stimulates the mind to allow for science and math," Miss Rider says. "I think people forget that."
The art program at Alameda Elementary wouldn't be possible without the support Miss Rider's class receives through Art Room Aid. "With 600 students at Alameda, art supplies go really fast. What's really great about Art Room Aid is that anybody can make a contribution. You simply ask for supplies and people can give you what you need."
