If you follow this blog, you have seen this stencil-artist before.
“A” is amazingly fast at taking a design and rendering it into a stencil. He can visualize the positive-negative relationship and cut them faster than I can say “put a board under it – and don’t cut yourself!” For his final project, he cut 8 or 9 new stencils to decorate his skateboard. Unfortunately, between cutting and spraying, we got our first snow and things have gotten downright unpleasant out the back door.
Undaunted, “A” completed his project, overlaying designs and colors as planned. He is preserving his stencils for future work at home. The next time I see “A” in class, he will be an 8th grader! Our time is art goes by too fast.
