SPRAYFINGER Graffiti camps are designed to help participants learn about graffiti as an exciting art form. Education in history, letter structure, aerosol techniques, and execution of personal and collaborative murals will be the focus. Students will experiment in three mediums; drawing, paper collage, and aerosol. Ages 7 years old to adults and seniors welcome.

Tuition for one student is $350. Each additional student you sign up is discounted $50.  Tuition includes all materials, equipment, and supplies. Students are required to show up ready to learn and be open for a fun and challenging experience. Light snacks and beverages will be provided, yet students need to bring their own lunches. Wear clothes that can get dirty and bring a creative mind!

NOTE: It is recommended that students purchase their own respirators for the aerosol portion of the camps, as they will not be provided. For more info on the products we will be using: ironlak.com/products/aerosols/sugar-artists-acrylic-spray-paint

 

 

 

The SPRAYFINGER workshops are set up for learning Graffiti: The Art of Creative Lettering and its aesthetic form. Graffiti as an art has a 50+ year history.  Students can expect to learn graffiti as a fine art with concepts that speak to it as a movement, a source of communication, and the enhancement of community rather than its detriment. Students begin drawing letters/fonts in their simple forms that increasing and gets more complexed with students own creativity. Students also work with color paper collage and simple color theory. And lastly, yet most important, students work with aerosol/spray paint and the traditional graffiti motifs with mural applications adding in a variety of techniques, mediums, and images of their personal choice.
