History/Provenance: APH introduced its Crafty Graphics kit in 2002 as a way to introduce the use of stencils in the preparation of classroom tactile graphics. "Stencil embossing produces a relief of the design of the stencil and creates a tactile effect." The product was designed to work with the APH Light Box. Jan Carroll and Karen Poppe were the co-project leaders. This video was created in 2004, narrated by Alan Smithee, produced by Sandi Baker, and cinematography/edited by Brian Dougherty.
