Students explore materials and experiment with stencil process. Students study positive verses negative shape. They experiment with color planning and learn what happens when colors overlap. They work with personal symbols and/or non-objective shapes and make at least one quality print.
Students use toothbrushes, scissors, tag board paper, pencils, drawing paper, tempera, water color kits, and water. They draw a simple contour shape on tag board and cut it out in one piece. Students identify the positive and negative parts of the stencil. Students in grades kindergarten through first do geometric and free form shapes. Upper grades can handle more complex shapes.
Students view prints of contemporary Inuit art and create a stencilling art piece. In this Inuit art lesson, students view a slideshow of Inuit art and write stories for the images. Students discuss the stories and art's effect. Students brainstorm about a heroic experience they've had and write a short story about it. Students then complete a stenciled art piece for the story.
