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!

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!

Out of every Airbnb experience I've done this definitely my favorite. I was nervous going alone and trying out something artsy since I'm a beginner. Jack made me feel super comfortable and coached me to make an amazing stencil. The stencil was a personalized present for my family members, and they loved that I made it for them. I made some new friends by coming alone, but I could also see this being a lot of fun for a birthday party or a date. Thanks Jack for all the fun and for helping me create some beautiful art!

Jack is a great host! He gives everyone in the class individualized attention, and my stencil came out much better than I had originally hoped. Everyone can get something out of this course, whether you're a beginner or someone more experienced with art. Thanks Jack for a great experience!
