Urban Art - Spray Paint Manifesto: Aerosols, Murals + Masterpieces (Age 14-17)
Youth Education

Students will work alongside local artist Dave Simon and spend five days digging in deep with aerosol arts, exploring the ins-and-outs of spraypaint techniques, murals, and street art. We will draw inspiration from the 'greats' of graffiti and guerilla art - from the early days of 'rogue' artists like Basquiat to today's highly-collected urban art legends like Shepard Fairey and Banksy. Extra lab time will be provided for students to go hands-on with large spraypaint mural projects and artworks of their own, as well as to hone in skills in stenciling, wheat paste, lettering, and other street art essentials. Co-sponsored with Higher Ground Learning.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Explore various forms & styles of street art with hands-on application
  • Understanding ethics of street art.
  • Study of worldwide street art history
  • Learn visual problem solving skills using street art tools.
