Create stencil painting in art studio

Emeryville, United States

Experience hosted by Jack

3 hours, 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!

Just a one of a kind experience. Getting access to Jack's incredible studio to make these unique works of art was very special. He was wonderful in guiding us through the process and very patient, ensuring everyone left with a nice piece you can be proud of. He was so generous with his time and resources. If you are traveling, you can even print onto very small wooden canvases (4x4 and 5x7) inches or opt for larger ones. I hope to book this again with more friends soon!!

This was a great experience! Jack was really nice and helpful throughout the whole process and even let me use multiple colors on my stencil art. I really liked that there were different sizes of wooden boards to choose from. The studio was easy to find and had adequate parking. Will definitely be recommending it to my friends and may even do the experience again.

This experience far exceeded my expectations! I was looking for some artistic inspiration while visiting the West Coast with my family and not only were we inspired but we actually created art and fun memories during our working with Jack. Initially, I coerced my wife and daughter to take an art lesson while on vacation due to my specific interest in Jack’s style and by the time we were finished with the experience the girls were genuinely grateful for my quirky request. Jack was able to take complete novices in us and guide us through the steps in taking a cherished photo and imparting our own interpretation to a lasting, genuine work of art. This is not even mentioning the studio, I felt like I was in a Google lab meets state of the art creative design artistry. A truly inspiring space! If I’m ever in Oakland again or wherever Jack is providing this class, I am absolutely returning with a bit more experience under my belt.

Jack's stencil experience was fantastic --- absolutely something that I would explore if you're looking for a super fun, informative, and genuinely special experience while living in SF or just exploring the city as a visitor. Jack will take you through the step-by-step of creating a stencil from a photo of your choosing (choose a simple photo if it's your first time - it can get difficult the more details you add!). Once you finish, you get to walk away with your stencil spray painted on a canvas that you select. Overall, Jack's stencil experience is a wonderful and low-pressure way to get in touch with your artistic side with the guidance of an experience artist. It's also a fantastic way to learn a new skill while simultaneously making a new decoration for your home or a special present for a special someone in your life (I stenciled a photo of my parents, and they loved it!). Couldn't recommend this experience more - will definitely be a return customer.

Great experience taught by an interesting host in a super cool studio/loft setting. Jack's quirkiness and passion is infectious and makes the whole group have so much more fun. The experience itself is structured in a way where you're encouraged to explore and express yourself in different ways but still feel safe and comfortable under Jack's guidance. This is not a paint and sip class where you literally just copy what the teacher is doing in front; this is much more rewarding and satisfying because you're creating a unique art piece with your own hands.
