Lutton joined Steve Topczewski, PPG business development manager, automotive refinish, and fellow painter Jeremy Seanor at the school to demonstrate and discuss painting techniques and technology.
STRONGSVILLE, Ohio, Nov. 8, 2012 – As part of an ongoing community outreach program, PPG Industries' (NYSE:PPG) automotive refinish business representatives Steve Topczewski, business development manager, and painters Jeremy Seanor and Jason Lutton recently visited Hudson Middle School in Hudson, Ohio, to teach eighth-grade students about automotive refinish color and technology.
The PPG experts showed painted panels and shared details about paint application and technology with five art-and-technology classes taught by Terry Stump. The class combines computer programs such as Adobe Photoshop, GarageBand for iMovies, and QuickTime with the rigorous and creative demands of drawing and design, the science surrounding cars, racing and fuel and the practical use of all these skills in a business setting. It is the only course of its kind in Ohio.
“Our class is hands-on with an emphasis on real-world applications,” Stump said. “To have these talented people from PPG come in and talk about what they know not only gives keen insight, it confirms the practical applications of what the kids have been studying.”
