CLEVELAND — Art students rejoice – it’s that time of year again! Krylon®, inventor of the first aerosol clear coatings to preserve priceless artwork, is proud to announce the fourth year of its Annual Clear Choice Art Scholarship Program. More than $11,000 in money, grants and art supplies will be awarded to future artists and their schools in 2012.
The top five applicants will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship and $70 worth of Krylon Artist Sprays to use in their work. As an added bonus, each winner’s high school will also receive $500 to fund its art program, as well as a package of Krylon Artist Sprays worth approximately $250.
