Learn more about the urban art technique of stencilling. Beginning with a discussion of the history and various styles of stencil art, the workshop will lead to a hands-on experience of designing, cutting and spraying your own stencils. From revolutionary and protest stencils, to pop culture riffs and Banksy’s humorous social commentaries, and now the hyperreal and even abstract, attendees can explore the various styles of stencil art as inspiration for their own creation!

Note: This workshop runs over two consecutive weeks.
