Stencils are an excellent tool for rapidly reproducing the same design over and over again. The process can be done simply by cutting away from a piece of material like cardboard, plastic, or even paper. Once paint is applied, it moves through the cutout and onto your surface of choice – revealing a sweet design! Stenciling began in the prehistoric period when hands acted as stencils on cave walls. Today intricate stencils are used by many street artists to tell their story in public places.

What else?
Stencils make a great tool for visual storytelling. Design a stencil that sends a message to others, and display that message publicly. More curriculum connectors can be found here.
