Description

Instructor: Darrell Rossman

Nov 11, 2017, 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Learn to design and laser cut stencils for painting! Stencils cut using a laser cutter can be used for street art, wall painting, canvas painting, and in many other creative situations. Stencils can be designed from scratch or adapted from a photograph or other visual material. Unlike hand-cut stencils reproducing laser-cut stencils is as easy as hitting print. The allows for quick and precise experimentation and iteration of stencils. In this workshop we will:

1. Review the history of stencil art and works by popular stencil artists.

2. Review common techniques for creation and application of stencils

3. Provide an overview of vector art process and explain how to create stencils for laser cutting using Adobe Illustrator.

4. Create your first laser cut stencil (and weather permitting), spray your first laser cut stencil art.

Prerequisite: Must have completed a laser cutter training at Make+Think+Code or collaborate with a partner who has. Existing Illustrator and vector experience is very helpful but not required. Students without Illustrator experience should expect to need extra time and patience to complete the workshop.

Required Materials: Participants will need a computer with Adobe Illustrator. Some computers with Illustrator will be available for those without.

We have a limited number of scholarships for our workshops. If you need an application, please send an email to mtc@pnca.edu with your complete name and contact information.
