The 2017 Krylon® Clear Choice Art Scholarship campaign resulted in nearly 100 qualified submissions. The talent represented in reviewed portfolios is quite impressive, making annual judging increasingly difficult.
Five recipients have received a $1,000 scholarship to the college of their choice, as well as a package of Krylon® artist products. The scholarship recipients’ high schools 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.

Creating is an ability I have discovered and loved because it allows communication that cannot be achieved through use of mere words. An artist transforms a piece of paper into a lens for people to see. A lens through which people SEE emotions and stories.
College: Western Michigan University
Hometown: Clinton Township, MI
I have found that my progression as an artist has opened my mind to limitless possibilities. Creating art challenges me to look beyond the ordinary by finding new meaning in the people, places, or things I usually encounter without much thought.
Ana Rodriguez Huesca
College: Laguna College of Art and Design
Hometown: Oregon House, CA
I intend my artwork to be a door for psychological exploration, and a place of stillness and stability. Themes in my work aim to strengthen a self-view that is not just neutral, but fully positive and appreciative of one’s essential human qualities, away from imposed cultural standards.
College: College for Creative Studies
Hometown: Guys Mills, PA
I realized that what I needed was focus. When I actively practiced I would set a part of my day aside and only draw in that time. My work and my focus increased exponentially providing strong pieces of work I was proud of.
College: Pratt Institute
Hometown: Lambertville, NJ
When creating art, I enjoy amplifying the nature of something that I experience and build upon it with mythical elements that have a basis in real events.
