8th Grade: Stencil Portraits

IMG_0360

The 8th graders created a stencil of someone important to them. I got a grant to buy spray paint from the  PTO and Blick happened to have a buy 5, get 1 free sale on Montana Black spray paint. It comes in a lot of different colors. I printed out some tips from this instructables lesson and reviewed them while I demonstrated how to use the spray paint. Then students practiced using spray paint to print their image. They also wore dentist-like masks to keep the fumes out (not pictured.)

Next, they’ll create a background and then create a final print by layering their stencil on top.
