Create stencil painting in art studio

Emeryville, California, United States

Experience hosted by Jack

  1. 3 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

We'll start with framing your creation-to-be. Pick out a photo you'd like to make into a stencil then pick a frame size. Next we head into Procreate to design your stencil. You will be instructed on selecting contours to trace, shadows to capture, and geometries to avoid to make your stencil both iconic and reproducible. Once you finish your design, take a short break while your stencil gets cut. Apply stencil to your block/canvas, spray paint with your color of choice, peel, and voilà! You have a personalized piece of art YOU made. Send your design to yourself too, so you can create more stencils!
Other things to note
No drawing experience required.
Be prepared to work tho!

Creating stencil art in Jack's studio was such a unique experience. Jack does a great job of making you feel comfortable with the process, while giving you the creative freedom to come up your own unique piece of art. I highly recommend this experience!

Hit the Road Jack because I’m coming back! Jack was a wonderful instructor. It was my first time doing something like this in years so I didn’t know what I was getting my self into. But with Jack’s tremendous patience and guidance I was able to create a masterpiece and most importantly a treasured experience for my trip. Thank you Jack! You have to try this out if you are in the area!

It’s a wonderful experience for me and my friend! We didn’t know how to start and were very hesitated about that at the beginning. However, we got very good results with host’s help and instructions. Host is very patient and helps us a lot. Highly recommend this experience!

We really enjoyed our stencil art experience with Jack! We began by drawing on an iPad which then got printed on a sticker which we spray painted over wood for the end product! We both really liked our painting and highly recommend this experience. It was relaxing and fun to get artsy!

What a fun and creative session! Highly recommend to both Bay Area visitors and locals! We had a friend visiting from SoCal and wanted to find something unique to do together near SF - Jack's stencil art experience was perfect! The studio has a lot of space and several cool pieces of furnitures (including our working desk!) made by the host. Jack was super thoughtful, chill and friendly. Most of us don’t have a professional art background, but with Jack’s guidance, each of us got a beautiful piece to bring home with. The host guided us through each step, patiently answered all our questions in detail and was always happy to help out if needed. I transformed a photo of my golden retriever pup and it turned out great! It was an awesome experience!
