Last night, I went the Stir, Splatter, and Roll event at Martin Luther King, Jr. High School near Lincoln Center. I was asked by Publicolor to design a serious of four canvases for high school kids to paint on. This year’s theme was “Color Different”, and what happens is that the canvases are auctioned off at the end of the night to help raise money for scholarships. 90% of the kids that are part of the Publicolor initiative go to college, and of those, 60% of them graduate from college. It’s a wonderful cause, and a fun one to be a part of!
This year, my design was called, “Homage to Malevich”, and you can see photos of the mock-up as well as the final product below.
“It was really exciting meeting the kids and painting with them. Many of the kids already had scholarships through Publicolor and they were happy to be there. It was great to see the program in action.” – Tina Ramchandani (Designer, Vicente Wolf Associates)
