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.
