Throwback Thursday: Groovy 1971 Acrylic Paint Ad from School Arts

12 Dec

I was gifted a huge trove of old School Arts and Arts and Activities magazines from a retired art teacher. They date all the way back to 1961. Here is a groovy ad for new ‘acrylic’ paints from School Arts Magazine, February 1971. Click photo for larger image.

 

Acrylic paint ad, 1971. So groovy! So many quotation marks!

Very groovy! I dig the Peter Max-ish design.

Enjoy!

      Hi Phyl and Marcia

      Isn’t this ad fun? I also love psychedelic art.

      I’ll post another vintage ad or article next Thursday.

      Hi Rach
      It reminds me of those cool Peter Max 7-Up ‘The Uncola’ ads.
