"By sharing the power of art with children, teachers and parents through Art Sparks Learning, we hope to inspire today's youth to become the artists of tomorrow," said Geoffroy Martin, CEO of Art.com. "Art.com is pleased to share our passion for art with these three special schools, and we encourage their communities to help them vie for a grand prize that will fuel their students' creativity, imagination and desire to learn."

Based on the success of its first Art Sparks Learning campaign, launched in November 2012, Art.com has once again selected three schools to each select 24 artworks based on each school's commitment to art education. Brookland Junior School in London, England, believes art positively influences pupils and is excited to surround and inspire children with artworks; Gladys Poet-Christian Elementary School in Tracy, Calif., uses art to teach students about the world, spark discussions and enhance students' understanding of cultural diversity; and Woods Cross Elementary School near Salt Lake City, Utah, believes art is a great way for students to express themselves, work through their emotions, and be better learners.

"We're dedicated to creating an environment through the arts that fosters our students' passions and encourages them to think out of the box," said Ranae Bennett, Fourth Grade Teacher at Woods Cross Elementary School. "Thanks to Art.com's generosity, we have a tremendous opportunity to provide our students with artworks that will further enhance their learning, appreciation of art and understanding of the world."
