sunday aug 5, 2012 marcia sandmeyer wilson teaches POCHOIR (stencil) printmaking on cloth, at the newark museum arts workshop from 10 am until 4 pm, for more information, phone steve mckenzie, manager, arts workshop, 973-596-6608. Pochoir, the French word for stencil, is a printmaking method in which one or more carefully cut stencils are used to hand-color a set of prints. Each color uses a separate stencil and brush to dab on the paint, and each stencil is applied in turn. The pochoir process is characterized by brilliant colors and crisp lines and produces images that have a freshly printed or wet appearance. In this workshop learn to cut stencils from drawings and then print them onto fabric or various articles of clothing. All levels

I love doing the schifferstadt show, and have returned every year since 2001. I have a lovely weekend for myself, despite the long drive down and back. If you want to find me there, my cell phone is 201-446-2791.
Here is my booth in July, 2009 at the Wickford RI Art Show.
Here I am touching up a frame in a September 2007 art show outside Church of our Saviour at Park Avenue at 38 Street NYC.
Here I am standing on a street in NYC in October, 2008. The photograph was taken by Richard Jefferson.
This photo was taken by Krista Schluter, during the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit in New York City, 2007. I used to love to sit by my booth and paint in the wonderful natural light of outdoors. Alas, those days are fading fast. It's hard to travel, set up my booth, sit all day and go home without having made my booth fee. So times change. I'm planning on doing more teaching now. And that has its own joys!
