Cass Art’s annual student day took place in Glasgow yesterday, offering local students free food and art supplies, on top of a 20% discount.
Propercorn and Gordon Street Coffee provided free food and drink in store, and later on in the day there was free pizza from the Shilling Brewing Company. There were also plenty of fun activities going on throughout the day; students could have their portrait taken, or they could step inside a famous portrait instead.
Cass Art not only kept students fed, watered and entertained, but they also gave away one of their award-winning tote bags filled with products worth over £40 (with purchases of £20.)
Their exclusive Winsor & Newton goodies tin included a ProMarker, a BrushMarker and a Water Colour Marker. The tin also came with two Pigment Markers and a Liquitex Paint Marker, filled with water-based acrylic paint.
Winsor & Newton’s ProMarker has with both a fine and a broad nib to provide buildable and blendable flat colour.
BrushMarkers have a broad nib and a brush nib for flexible, fluid strokes.
The vibrant ink in a Water Colour Marker can be used to create beautiful colour washes.
The ink in a Pigment Marker has the quality of paint and is available in more than 100 colours.
These Pigment Markers can be used with Winsor & Newton’s unique blending marker to create an infinite palette.
The Winsor & Newton goodie tin also came with a Professional Paint Marker from Liquitex. The pens are filled with water-based acrylic and are intermixable with paint.
The Cass Art exclusive tin is filled with products worth more than £30, but the opera rose goodie bag had even more to offer. Students were given two products from Royal Talens, three STAEDTLER pencils and four Derwent graphite pencils.
Talens’ versatile Ecoline Liquid Water Colour is available in 46 vibrant, transparent colours. It can be used for illustrations, impressions, calligraphy and more.
Their Brush Pens are filled with the same liquid water colour and are great for painting on the go.
STAEDTLER’s pack included a Noris eco and a Noris colour pencil, both of which have a luxurious and velvety feel, making them comfortable to work with.
Their neon WOPEX pencil has the same non-slip surface and has smooth, gliding lead.
Derwent’s professional graphic pencils create a graduated line and are available in 20 degrees from 9B to 9H.
Cass Art are hosting six more student days this year in Birmingham, Kingston, Bristol, Brighton, Islington and Liverpool. Details can be found on their website.
