Fun with Handmade Stencils

Day of the Dead sugar skulls by Denise R.

Last weekend, I taught Fun with Handmade Stencils at Artistic Artifacts.

We created stencils from freezer paper, packing tape and shelf liner. We played with layering textures. Students learned about designing multi-colored stencils and working with bridges. Here are the results:

Buffy also played with some freezer paper masks.

I even jumped in to play with stencils!

Thanks students for an enjoyable class!
