Day 1: Choose an image of an animal, project it and trace it onto plastic, reducing it to 5 colours including white and black. Label the colours. Place your stencil on the white stencil card and cut out white, apply the sticky plastic and spray colour 2.
Day 2: Place the stencil onto your image and cut out colour 2 and apply the sticky plastic. Spray colour 3.
Day 3: Place the stencil onto your image and cut out colour 3 and apply the sticky plastic. Spray colour 4.
Day 4: Place the stencil onto your image and cut out colour 4 and apply the sticky plastic. Spray colour 5.
Day 5: Mask out colour 5 and spray your background. Wait for it to dry and frame your animal stencil.
The cutting and spraying of the stencils won't take the whole time in the lesson, and we can't stencil onto wet paint so we have to leave them to dry overnight. In the intervening time, I have several activities on offer.
1.Pencil and colour pencil drawings on paper of your animal or a series of animals to get the feel of their shape and proportions.
2.A series of precut stencils will be provided to experiment with using stippling brush technique and colour mixing.
3.An acrylic painting of your animal or series of animals.
Look at Pop Art, Manga, cartoon, rubber hose imagery, your favourite game.. How do the shapes and colours look? What do you like, and what would you like to include?
