Spraying

Students at the Willard Hope Center explored adding spray paint to their paintings recently.

Everyone added stencils to the paintings they have been working on and then their favorite color of paint.

Learning to use spray paint was much harder than it seemed to the students.

Students really enjoyed the process of spray painting.

Here are some examples of the paintings.
