Students worked really hard to create these multi-part stencil designs. Each young person thought up their own positive slogan or affirmation and then used a craft knife to cut a stencil into cardboard. The students worked in tempera paint and used sponges to stencil their affirmations on to paper. Students used sponges to dab the paint on, which left a visual texture similar to spray paint. This added to the slogans' graffiti-like feel.
