I am an art teacher with the Fairfield Community Schools teaching grades K through 5. I enjoy working with the children and helping them learn to use the creative side of their brain. I hope you enjoy my blog and seeing a bit of what we work on in the art classes.

Stencil Paint on 1898 house!

We are continuing to work on our 1898 house and this summer I have been doing some stenciling of borders. This border is designed after the original (bottom layer) of wallpaper that we uncovered, under other layers and under paneling. I drew the design from the original border and cut it holes in plastic to create a stencil. This is a big project with hopeful results. Redoing this old house over the years is a huge labor of love.
