Cutting stencils

Today I worked all day on putting the final details/touches on all the window paintings..almost done with them all! But before that, Nastya and I organized which stencils will go on which window panes, and she worked with the students to trace the previously-drawn stencil shapes onto vellum paper and then cut them out. Fortunately, most stencil drawings were already a good size for the windows, so we didn't have to re-draw too many! Some of the students also designed new stencils so that we would have enough for each window. The idea is that the stencils that decorate the outside of each window should relate to the content inside.
