I’m so excited! After 25 years, I’m going to take my second-ever stencil class. This looks to be TOO much fun and way “outside the box” for me. The class is online (so you can take it with me) and is taught by Mary Ann Moss of Dispatch from LA. The class is definitely geared more to working on paper and creating journal pages and other small “works of art”, but I’m excited to translate some of the ideas to wall finishes. I can imagine introducing glazes, texture and gilding along with the spray paint and layering techniques. I’m also thinking of hosting some of my own classes this way in the future. It makes a LOT of sense (cents)! These photos are some cool student works from Mary Ann’s last class.




You can find more details and enroll here. The “work at your own pace” class runs from June 26-July 17. There’s also an inspiring Flickr group here. “See” you in class!
