    Really cool class! I loved learning more about the history of stencil graffiti art and it was a great opportunity to work with such an acclaimed artist. Plus it's fun to have your own stencil at the end!

    Peat was really helpful and created a great learning environment that was laid back and fun. Definitely recommending my friends to take the next class in May. Hoping there will be a part two!

    I had a great time at Peat's stencil 101 class! He did a presentation on the history of stencils in street art and introduced us to many artists I wasn't familiar with. I brought a rough digital file and he showed us how to make it stencil-ready using Photoshop. Then we pasted it to oil board, cut out the stencil and even had time to spray it! Peat was super helpful and made the process pretty easy. I would suggest bringing a canvas to use your finished stencil on.

    I had no experience going in to this class and Peat was so helpful. I left with a wonderful stencil and the know-how to do this on my own now. Very impressed, Thanks!

    It was an interesting class and covered all the basics to complete an a stencil project from start to finish. Also provided an interesting history of stenciling. I am confident that I could now do a project at home on my own.
