Stencil Art

Stencil Art – 1RW1
Rebecca Wild

Artists and craftspeople throughout history have used stencils as a form of expression. Learn the basics of stencil art using watercolor and chalk pastels. We will cut simple, reusable templates out of contact paper to create luminous, color-rich forms and patterns. This process will enable you to add greater depth and possibility to your calligraphic work.
