Skateboarding is about having fun and expressing your individual style. So why look like every other kid in the neighborhood? In July, the PONSHOP held a 3-session, 6 hour workshop called "Skate To Create." Students designed their very own skateboard graphic and, using stencils and spray paint, applied it on a blank skateboard deck.
I helped the students finalize their ideas in sketch form and gave a demonstration on the "rules" and process of cutting and spraying a stencil. Congratulations to Katie, Sarina, and Brandon. These students worked rigorously from conception to applying the last coat of paint. The decks turned out great and whether they're hung on a wall or under someone's feet, the workshop was a success.
