Art Scrimmage

Ileana Lavender’s Middle School Art students explain the processes they use to create colorful scrims. The project is a modification of  fabric screen designs frequently used in theatrical productions.

Ideally, scrims are displayed hanging from the ceiling with the velum suspended one foot in front of the wallpaper strip.  The desired effect is an interplay of light and shadow cast from the stenciled cut-outs on the velum.


  • pencils
  • exacto knives
  • card stock (manila folders)
  • 6’x30″ strips of velum
  • 6’x30″ strips of wall paper
  • acrylic paint
  • popcicle sticks
  • dry brushes
