Graffiti Workshop for Youth
This is a great workshop for kids ages 13-16!
Art all day - drawing caricatures, cartoons, dragons, super heroes, cool lettering, 3D lettering, scribbling just for fun, big marker art. We will be doing a ton of fun drawing in a sketch book (provided to all participants). You'll see improvement every minute of the day. There is no better feeling when it comes to your art. This workshop is casual and fun!
Urban art is just one style we will be doing. It is a form of artistic expression which has matured into an exciting and commercial form of graffiti. You will learn the how-to basics using various mediums including markets, acrylic paints and air brushes. This part of the class includes the history of graffiti art and profiles successful graffiti artists while illustrating how they utilize their talent. I emphasize the important distinction between graffiti as an urban art form versus an act of vandalism. "Vandalism is never cool!" Also, learn the techniques and understand the culture.
You will be provided with your own hard cover art sketch book to draw and create in, a set of markers and more. There will be an art show on the last day showing the art that has been created by everyone.
