2019 Krylon® Clear Choice Art Scholarship Winners

The 2019 Krylon® Clear Choice Art Scholarship campaign resulted in over 200 submissions from talented art students around the U.S. and Canada. The artistic ability demonstrated in the submitted portfolios is quite impressive, making annual judging increasingly difficult.

Five recipients received a $1,000 scholarship to the college of their choice, as well as a package of Krylon® artist products. The scholarship recipients’ high school art programs also received a $500 grant and Krylon artist products, from which multiple students will benefit.

An additional ten students received Krylon product packages valued at $70 each and their high school art programs received product packages valued at $250 each.

Art at once relaxes me and provokes me. I need it physically and spiritually; It is how I work out how I feel about things. I try to let the art be free while questioning people’s behaviour. I try to show what it is like to be me now; to be honest and questioning; to show the interrelatedness of people.

I came to the conclusion that I wanted to be a concept artist for movies. Before a movie can be made, concept artists generate the ideas for how the characters, set, and creatures with look. To achieve that, I will earn a degree in illustration.

The minute I start creating art, expressing my ideas becomes easy. I became an artist so I can stand tall on my differences, embracing my flaws. I now incorporate my imperfections into my art, providing me with a voice of my own.

For me, art is a compulsion more than it is a hobby. I hunger for it. It feeds my soul. It is therapeutic. It makes me happy. The wonderful thing about art is that it can be used to make others happy as well.

I am entranced by the subtleties of filmography and the physics of lighting. The drawings and paintings I create focus on realistic textures, lighting, and color. I enjoy drawing objects around me and showing mundane things in an artistic light.
