Amsterdam Art

Dec 2001

I recently received the holiday flier from Amsterdam Art containing a letter from the founder, saying they are struggling for survival. Amsterdam Art, a local homegrown art supply house, has been a great supporter of arts in the public schools, gives discounts to teachers to help them bring art into the classroom and has even given small grants and donations of supplies to teachers who want to expose students to the art process. I personally have made many trips to Amsterdam Art's University Ave (corner of Univ and 9th I think) store for classroom supplies, materials for girl scouts, great stuff for my own kids, birthday presents and many batches of sculpy for assignments my kids have had. But it is their support for public school teachers that I think is worth mentioning here. I just thought parents might want to know about this and think about shopping at a local treasure that has supported our kids being creative and artistic, and having access to high quality supplies! thanks Kathy

Child's Easel

From: Kathleen (7/98)

Re: child's standing easel - we found a very nice one at Hearthsong in Berkeley. It's adjustable so that the four-year-old can have her side at one height and the two-year-old can have her side at another. It has a chalk board and tray and with clips and paper they can paint. They love it.--Kathleen
