As the college encourages your creativity via painting crafts/gifts, etc., it also acknowledges that painting crafts/gifts may have the unintentional results of paint overspray on various surfaces, thus, painting items is prohibited in the stairwells, on the walkways, roads, parking lots, patios, etc.  Painting items is only permitted on any natural grass areas away from buildings; when painting in these areas, students will need to use cardboard boxes (or some other material) to catch the paint overspray to preserve the grass.
