Single and Multicolor Stencils
This class will start May 18th, after which, rolling admission. Sign up today!
Stenciling is a technique rich in both tradition and use; stencils can be used to create repeatable imagery for most any surface. Perhaps you have seen beautifully crafted loaves of bread, whose surface was dusted with flour through a stencil just prior to baking? Or a smattering of ivy painted as a border at ceiling height in a comforting and sumptuous room.
In this class we will explore making single and multicolored stencils to be used in your mixed media adventures. Melanie will explain how to draw and plot out both single and multicolor stencils, show you how to cut and use your stencils on several types of surfaces; cloth, gesso’d wood and paper. A discussion of color mixing and paint types will help you to round out your skill set. Melanie will also explain how to find inspiration in the pages of your journals, from books and the world around you.
