Graffiti Art for Teens

Saturday, June 18, 2016 -

Graffiti art is a very specialized art form, and a great way for artists to tell visual stories throughout the community.  In this program, you will learn to draw graffiti style!  Participants will learn about the elements of space, color, and value, while learning about street artists and writing graffiti style.  Everyone will also make their own temporary street art piece.  Students will receive a sketchbook, and will be provided with all necessary supplies.
