Meet Square 1 Art

Jane and Travis Kids

History

In 2000, Martha and Andrew Reid risked virtually everything to realize an American dream: owning and operating a successful business. Martha’s passion for art education coupled with Andrew’s business operations experience, made a perfect match for success. S1A jumped from concept to reality, and the journey began! Andrew and Martha created a customer centric culture based on commitment to excellence, recognition of employees, and hard work. The culture and traditions Martha and Andrew instilled remain integral components of the company today.

A decade later, Andrew and Martha's children, Travis and Jane Reid, will carry on the company's mission to keep Square 1 Art a Nationwide Leader in Art Fundraising.

Art Advocacy

Did you know? According to the Americans for the Arts, kids who are involved in the arts are:

 

4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.

3 times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools.

4 times more likely to participate in a math and science fair.

3 times more likely to win an award for school attendance.


Art creation promotes problem solving skills, self-esteem, and thinking outside the box. Coordinating an art fundraiser is a great way to incorporate art into the academic curriculum through interdisciplinary and multi-cultural studies. Square 1 Art is a proud supporter of the National Art Education Association.
