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.
