POCHOIR: HAND STENCILING WITH GOUACHE
Saturday, December 7, 2013 – Saturday, December 14, 2013 / 9:00 am
Students will enjoy learning the history and context of pochoir which reached its heyday in 1920s France while exploring contemporary applications of this hand-stenciling technique. Pochoir is a simple and beautiful way to layer forms, create pattern and build a matte surface using stencils and water-soluble gouache. During this two-day workshop, the tradition of pochoir will be explored as a way to create unique yet reproducible images and to hand color prints and drawings with saturated, velvety, flat blocks of color. Students will experiment with ways to apply gouache to make both transparent and opaque effects, practice fading and blending, and stenciling onto alternative surfaces.
