Certified Members

Ellie Ellis, CMS

The IDAL Stenciling Certification program provides an opportunity for League members to have their work juried by the leaders in the field. Only truly outstanding work passes the scrutiny of the Stenciling Certification Review Committee.


In recognition of their outstanding work, IDAL's certified stencilers are listed with the appropriate designation following their names.

Certfied Master Stenciling Teacher (CMST)

This class of certification can only be achieved after the member has earned the title of Certified Master Stenciler (CMS)

Peggy Decker


Certified Master Stenciler (CMS)

This class of certification can only be achieved after the CS member has earned passing marks in four master categories: wood, walls, fabric, and a free choice of substrate. Each artist's imagination is challenged at this level. Applicants are juried on the basis of their creativity, inventiveness and skilled approach to the coordination of colors and designs. Only truly outstanding work meets this standard of stenciling excellence.

Certified Stencil Artisan (CSA)

As with its counterpart, the Certified Stenciler (CS), the applicant’s technical abilities (measuring, placement, as well as design and color coordination) are juried. However, the CSA program was created to allow the Certification candidate more artistic freedom in creating a unique design concept.
