Spray Paint and Stencil Workshop

Learn from one of Australia’s veteran stencil artists – Sarah Sculley. With over a decade of experience teaching spray paint and stencil workshops in secondary schools, Sarah hopes to encourage more students to confidently create artwork with spray paint.

This workshop is for students in secondary school who are spray paint and stencil beginners. The lessons progress through concept development, spray paint safety and techniques, preparing a two-layer stencil in Adobe Photoshop, cutting the stencils, spraying the stencils, mark making, critiquing and FAQs. 

Sarah will guide your students through a step-by-step process to create a two-layer stencil artwork. The lessons are clear and well structured. Each class begins with a video tutorial which briefs the students and demonstrates techniques before encouraging the students to use the remaining class time to practise this new technique. 

This course is intended to be purchased by Australian Secondary School Art Departments for use by teachers to watch the videos with the students during class. 

Workshop Inclusions

This workshop includes a number of resources for both teachers and students. Teachers' notes for each lesson, a supply list and where to purchase (in Australia), stencil templates ready to print and cut, as well as textural stencil templates. Also included are printable instructions on how to use Photoshop to create stencils. Although this instructional video is included, it can be difficult to remember all the steps. The printable instructions are a great resource to print and put on the wall for future reference.

Flexible Lesson Plan

The ideal amount of time for this workshop is 8 lessons of 45-60min in length. With a 4 – 10min video introduction to each lesson, the students will then have the remainder of the time to create the practical aspect of the program. The workshop can be shortened to 6 lessons and still create an impressive canvas artwork outcome..

Flexible Content

Students are encouraged to have a laptop to work from. Ideally, Adobe Photoshop installed on the laptop, but if this is not possible, Sarah offers other options to prepare stencils. If time constraints do not allow for an 8 lesson program, students can skip the Photoshop lesson and use the 26 stencil templates provided. Purchase this workshop only once and receive lifetime access to this teaching tool. One outcome focused program planned and presented for your class each year.
