Full description
Ready to get down and dirty with graffiti? Enjoy a hands-on lesson that will teach you about this controversial art form. In recent years, graffiti and street art have become increasingly more popular and appreciated by the public. Simple scrawls have evolved into detailed mural compositions. Now is the time to learn more about this exploding artistic phenomenon!

A respected New York City artist will immerse you in this underground world. They will begin the workshop by walking you through a brief overview and history. Then he or she will introduce you to basic painting techniques and theories. This includes tags (small), throw-ups (medium) and pieces (large). See a live demonstration of basic techniques and observe the artist’s process. Then get ready to participate hands-on!

Become an amateur graffiti artist yourself by working on a colorful masterpiece under the tutelage of your expert instructor. Everyone will get a chance! Watch the canvas or wall come to life with vibrant colors. By the end of this workshop, you will leave with an introductory understanding of graffiti and its history. You will have learned basics of the trade and will have created your very own piece of graffiti art!
