Students in MS Art participated in a stencil project. Please see below for highlights on the art process. AES Middle School is so fortunate to have an incredible Visual Arts program led by Ms. Strever and Ms. Willcott.
In this stencil project, we had to make a stencil about a certain world issue. After choosing, we would make a few thumbnails for the stencil and the background. After that, we used Adobe Sketch along with a few photos to make a stencil, making sure that all whites were connected and that lines were thick. Then. we printed and laminated them, cut them out with exacto knives (cutting out the black) and worked on our backgrounds. Here, we painted or modge podged them (or both). Then, we had a few practice spray paints before finally spraying them on our boards.
The goal of this project was to make a meaningful piece of resistance art, that would portray this message without words. As this art is usually in the form of spray paint because that is how it is most impactful, ours was in spray paint too.
