Learn about graffiti, an art form developed in hip-hop culture. Graffiti has been around for a while and is considered a very controversial form of art. Graffiti is one of the 4 elements of hip-hop and has contributed greatly to the culture. In this course students will learn about graffiti’s history, past present and future. Students will study artists and their different styles, mediums, and messages. We will also look into graffiti’s effect on our culture as a whole and how it has influenced other cultures, communities and art forms.
The graffiti course will consist of visual art training, mixed media art projects, and mural painting. At the end of the course we will give students an opportunity to collaborate on a final project, exhibit their work and integrate with the other elements.
