Challenge yourself and your stenciling skills!!!!


 
Stencils…when you hear the word, do you think “little ducks” used as a border or a random fleur de l‘ils on kitchen cabinets? If you do, think again. Stencils have been used for centuries as tools to recreate a repeated image with accuracy and efficiency. Stencils offer speed and reproducibility that no other method can match.  
The International Decorative Artisans League (IDAL) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the art of stenciling and related decorative painting. Membership in IDAL provides opportunities for artistic and professional growth through education, certification, public awareness, and networking. 
Certification through the International Decorative Artisans League validates our Members' training and education in the decorative arts. Members apply for certification as a way to set a higher standard for their work, and artisans can point to their professional certification proudly when clients ask for qualifications beyond the sample boards. 
 
Four levels of certification are available. There are two entry levels to Certification to choose from, the Certified Stenciler (CS) or the Certified Stenciling Artisan (CSA).  
Certified Stenciling Artisan is really a way to focus your creative energy and knowledge in applying the craft of stenciling to an interior design. Many artisans use their skills in this way on a project by project basis. The CSA offers an individual a formal challenge that is evaluated by peers who have already passed certification. The Certification committee looks forward to the future of stenciling and to viewing the applications from talented decorative painters!
