Making a Stencil from a Picture

This workshop is part of a new and evolving series of workshops created in collaboration with teenagers from AccessArt’s Experimental Drawing Class, where teenagers themselves are encouraged to teach and facilitate the creative process to other teenagers. In this resource teenagers share their knowledge of making a stencil from a picture.

Over two, one and a 1/4 hour sessions, Sara and Jasmine, aged 15, shared their knowledge of How to Make a Stencil and use spray paint with other teenagers.

Sara and Jasmine did an altogether brilliant job of sharing their knowledge and students achieved remarkable results!

If you want to make stancils to use with spray paint, you will need;
