A couple of weeks ago at Pueblo Nuevo we taught a stencil workshop. We had such a great time! We had labor/organizers, researches, grad students, undergrads-it was multiracial and a great space for folks to connect.
We believe that the immediacy and power of stencil art has made it a prominent tool in political, social and artistic movements. It’s a very accessible way to create reproducible art that requires very little in terms of resources. All you need is some cardboard-like a cereal box, a blade and something to transfer the image like spray paint, chalk, crayons, acrylic paint, markers etc.
