About Us


In 2000, elementary art teacher Marty Reid was working for an art fundraising company. She loved the concept of recreating children’s art on keepsakes to raise funds for schools. As a teacher, she wanted to create an art fundraiser that would be easier to manage . She also believed the program should focus on the artists! So Marty and her husband Andrew set out to create a simple-to-run and rewarding fundraiser  – and Square 1 Art was born.

Square 1 Art promotes creativity, so
each child feels like an accomplished artist.

While Andrew focused on the business and production side, Marty created the Square 1 Art fundraiser through  “teacher eyes” – with a program that fit the busy classroom while supporting learning objectives.  Square 1 Art promotes student creativity,  “helping each child feel like an accomplished artist”!  So no child is left out, Square 1 Art gives every student a gift – FREE stickers of their own artwork – no purchase required.

Today, Marty and Andrew’s son, Travis Reid, leads the company’s growth and development. By honoring the core values and mission established by his teacher-mom, Square 1 Art continues to be a leading fundraising partner with schools across the U.S.A.
