National Painting Week! - May 22-30

Posted By The Sherwin-Williams Company, Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week is an annual celebration dedicated to protecting and beautifying the things and places we love – in our own homes and in the communities in which we live. 

Participating and promoting Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week is a great way to showcase your expertise and enhance your position as a strong community partner.

There are many ways you and your team can get involved with National Painting Week.

  • Consider volunteering time and joining forces with a local Sherwin-Williams store on a community project. Sherwin-Williams provides the paint and tools for these projects, and store employees and contractors help with the labor. Examples of projects include schools, city landmarks and youth, senior and community centers.
  • Another option is to start your own community projects as a way to support an organization that inspires you.
  • National Painting Week is also a great opportunity for  to promote your work and business, whether or not you participate in a community project. Consider celebrating with Sherwin-Williams by offering a promotion in honor of Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week. 

 Don’t forget to visit Sherwin-Williams social media sites to share National Painting Week social media posts, infographics and more to attract attention to your work and business.

 To learn more, contact your local Sherwin-Williams store or rep, email or visit

This year, as part of Sherwin-Williams 150th anniversary celebration, similar painting projects will be taking place throughout the world during 2016.


  • Sherwin-Williams already provides me with paint for other charitable projects. How is this different? 

National Painting Week is a national Sherwin-Williams initiative. Consider completing a charitable project during the month of May and on behalf of National Painting Week to help you to market the good you are doing in your community and amplify your message.

Every project is different; there is no minimum or maximum time required for volunteers and is determined on a case-by-case basis
