Street Artz: Stencils and Stickers
with Isaiah Aledejobi
Middle School Only: 6th grade to 8th grade
In “Street Artz-Stencils and Stickers” students will get an understanding of street art and how it can expand the reach for visual messaging. We will start developing designs through fine arts by creating stickers and transition into graphics. Students will be introduced to Adobe Illustrator, where they will digitize a design and transition into printing stencils from the 3D printer. Students will come to understand that their voice matter and the course is made to give their voice longevity through different techniques, materials and resources. At the end of the course, students will have stickers and prints that they will incorporate to the mural on the wall of the entrance of Project Create.
