Supporting Art in the Schools: Our National Painting Week Project is a Kids’ Art Crawl

by on May 3, 2017

We say it every year – National Painting Week is our favorite week of the year, because the power of paint is never ending. Each year, Sherwin-Williams puts out the call to bloggers all over the country to refresh a space, change its perspective, or add more emotion through the transformative power of paint. Last year, we embarked on a community-based project, making over our beloved neighborhood preschool.

It was so fun and rewarding that we decided to stick with the theme of community engagement. This year, we partnered with our neighborhood elementary school – a public school we treasure and believe in wholeheartedly – to create an unforgettable painting project that we integrated into our city-wide Art Crawl. 

Why Is Curbly Black and White Today? 
Oh, you noticed that, did you? Good! That’s the point. Today, Wednesday, May 3, 2017, Curbly is ‘donating’ all the color on our home page, and in return, Sherwin-Williams will donate 5,000 square feet of paint to community non-profits. In fact, Sherwin-Williams is donating thousands of gallons of paint during National Painting Week and throughout the year for everyone who gets involved!

Learn more at, or by following #SWPaintingWeek on social media.
