Street Art Class

Free course on street art. Each class will teach you how to do something new, and will have an open discussion on the week's philosophy topic. Students are asked to bring what's listed in Supplies. Extra Credit is to be done before the class takes place. The 1st hour of each class will be for discussion and practice. The 2nd hour will be for 'live action.' The goal of this class is to enable and spotlight unknown artists. No participant will permanently deface, tag, or vandalize public or private property. The goal is to gain public space for street art via permitted & commissioned work, donated by local businesses and private property owners.
