Stencils ready?

At the Santos Dumont college in Saint-Cloud, the student of the A-level diploma had the opportunity to discover and learn about the street art techique
The aim? To realize a group artwork whici is a mural of 15 famous pelople.
And who is the teacher? That’s MiMi the Clown who followed the students and learnt them how to make stencils during almost 3 months.

The students have to understand the technique of stencil before, and then to draw, cut their stencil – human size – and paint with spraycans. 15 backboard, has been exhibited on the first level of the Musée des Avelines and then will decorate the college.

We went to the last « lesson » where we saw the artwork of the students and we assisted to the live performance of MiMi the Clown painting a clown in a frame. Great to see him in action!
