Painting Without The Hassle of Daily Paint Mixing and Distribution

Help me give my students stay wet painting palettes so they can focus more on expressing themselves rather than managing materials.

My Students

My students are absolutely amazing artists. I am continually stunned by the work they create. They are adventurous and love to explore any new techniques I show them. We are working hard in art classes and having lots of fun! But this means balancing academic art skills and yet allowing for student self expression.

Students need appropriate palettes to support their art making endeavors.

Right now the tools available limit the outcomes of their work. We do not have quality pallets for storing acrylic or oil paints overnight. If we had palettes that sealed, students would save a lot of time mixing colors for their paintings, as well as paint.

My school is located in a working class area. Our students take great pride in the things they own and care for them. Students are unusually compassionate and caring towards each other and the community. They come from families who are not wealthy but have worked to instill values of hard work, respect and integrity in all they do.

My Project

These palettes will make a world of difference in our classroom! They will allow my students to save time mixing paint colors. The palettes will help us keep cleaner and the instructional flow less cumbersome. Students will be able to pick up painting where they left off the day before, because the colors are already mixed and fresh. It will save paint from being thrown out or drying up daily. In addition it will free my time from daily paint distribution to being able to support students as they seek to experience the joy of painting and express themselves through the art making process.
