My Students

My high school art students are a highly motivated group of kids that come from a large urban environment. They travel up to two hours each day on public transportation to get to and from school, and then spend hours after school involved in sports, clubs, honors societies, student government, and working part-time jobs. My Contemporary Painting students come to class with a range of art experience, but with an eagerness to get their hands dirty and learn how to paint.

My Project

My Contemporary Painting students need gallons of brilliantly colored acrylic paint to create stunning artworks. Beginning painting students often struggle to mix paints because they are using sub-par student grade paints that are transparent and impossible to blend. Novacolor paints are opaque and super-saturated, while also fluid and easy to manipulate with a brush. They are the perfect acrylic paints for students and professional artists.

These high-quality acrylic paints will turn my students' ordinary paintings into extraordinary masterpieces.

My students will feel more confident in their artistic abilities using this paint, and they will be extremely proud of their finished paintings!
