"Our students and studio members have not only benefitted from special pricing and shipping from the Rio for Schools program, but have had the unique opportunity to receive ongoing technical support from Rio's knowledgable technical support team. Our students have been able to tour the Rio facility and learn more about what goes into Rio Grande's unique mission and structure. As a studio overall, we have been able to outfit our facility with the best tools and equipment, largely due to the Rio for Schools program, and this benefits us all!"
"The Rio for Schools program has provided great savings while purchasing supplies I need to work in class as well as at home. The staff at Rio is very friendly, fast, and informative. If I have questions on how to achieve a certain look they give me ideas on how to do it and get me the tools I need. With the help of Rio for Schools, I was able to source materials for an entire jewelry set, based on the Fifth Element that is now in the gallery in CNMs library."
"It seems as though I'm calling Rio Grande all the time, not just to purchase materials at a discounted rate, but also to get their expert advice! They are always knowledgeable, friendly and willing to help me with whatever I need. Thanks to the Rio for Schools program, I've been able to take advantage of my program discounts to afford more of the materials I need to keep creating while I continue on my jewelry journey."
