Class of 2022 Senior Parking Spots!

Including tips for painting your own parking spot!


Tips for painting parking spots:

  • Bring a leaf blower! You will need to clean off your spot before you paint it, and using a broom takes way too long.
  • Don’t try to make your design too specific, bigger designs usually look better.
  • Pair up with someone! Even if you’re not doing coordinating spots, it goes a lot quicker when you’re with a close friend. My friend and I rotated between whose spot we worked on, and that made it a lot more fun!
  • Bring something to open your paint cans with: everyone will need one, but everyone forgets to bring one.
  • Bring a tarp to lay down in the trunk of your car, you do NOT want paint stuck in your car.
  • You only need about one and a half gallons of paint for the base.
  • Use chalk to outline your design!
  • Make stencils if your design lends itself to it, pasteboard or cardboard works best.
  • Bring a trash bag to put your wet brushes in.
  • You will not be able to do your whole design in one day, expect it to take two or three sessions.
  • Just have fun and do a design that makes you happy!
