Halloween may look a little different this year, however Nissan is still proving to be an inspiration this spooky season, by introducing some high school art students to automotive design, by having them decorate the “Halloween Edition” of the 2020 Nissan Sentra!

Providing advanced art students from Hillsboro High School in Tennessee with art supplies, decorating tips, and a two-tone Monarch Orange Metallic 2020 Sentra, to use as their canvas, the students got busy putting their artistic skills to work on the Sentra!  The result:  A Spooky 2020 Nissan Sentra Halloween Display!

The students also got to speak virtually with Nissan Senior Design Manager – Nicole Fonseca, to talk about automotive design careers!  Fonseca created the orange exterior color “Sunset Drift ChromaFlair” for Nissan.  “While Halloween is a great time to be crafty, students need more opportunities like this, where they are given different outlets to be creative,” Fonseca said. “I didn’t know color design existed as a career path, or even car design when I was in primary school. So, I’ve made it my mission to tell students that these possibilities exist for them.”

The students, who have been attending school virtually due to the pandemic, were only just reunited to work on the Sentra, which is one of nine Nissan models that is offered in an Orange shade!  The Kicks, Rogue, Qashqai, Sentra and Versa also come in Monarch Orange Metallic, while the Altima, LEAF, Maxima, and Murano are available in Sunset Drift ChromaFlair!  “Color is very important in art. It expresses who we are visually and evokes emotion,” said Briana Burtsell, Visual Arts Teacher at Hillsboro High School. “I’m so excited to have had the chance to work with Nissan and my students on this fun and creative Halloween project. It shows my students how important color is in applications outside of the classroom.”  The 2020 Nissan Sentra Halloween Edition is currently on display in the lobby of the Nissan North American Headquarters, in Franklin, Tennessee. 

The 2020 Nissan Sentra is a head-turning sedan, with a class-leading interior, standard Safety Shield 360, seamless connectivity, and amazing performance.  If you would like more information on the 2020 Sentra, then please drop by and visit us at our Guelph Nissan Dealership, or alternatively, take a look at our Guelph Nissan Website, and browse our 2020 Sentra Online Inventory!
