Drawing Major Wins Scholarship Competition

Posted September 21, 2012 in Student

Sophomore Drawing major Issac Daniel Smith is one of five recipients of a $1,000 Krylon Clear Choice Scholarship.

Smith was selected from a field of over 50 outstanding portfolios for the scholarship competition. In addition to his cash award, he received a package of Krylon artist sprays, fixatives, and adhesives. Smith’s high school in Bowling Green, OH received a $500 grant as well as Krylon artist products, from which multiple students will benefit.

“With tuition costs on the rise and art programs in secondary schools often subject to budget cuts, Krylon is proud to invite young artists to apply for one of the available Clear Choice Art Scholarships," said Katherine Merkle, Krylon brand manager. "We're excited to embark on the program's fourth year, as investing in future artists and their dreams are a large part of our company's heritage."

Krylon has served the art market since 1947 when it introduced the first aerosol clear protective acrylic coating. Today the name is synonymous with fine art preservation and high-performance clear coatings, artist sprays and adhesives.
