Graffiti art workshops remain our second most popular urban art workshop. These workshops encompass a variety of activities. For example, we often work on canvases, or decorate baseball caps with graffiti names. The participants learn about graffiti art by doing; taking a completed piece home. These workshops are bespoke, and all ages seem to really enjoy this genre. Our graffiti creator really knows how to engage children and young people!
One of our most popular workshops is graffiti caps! Here, we decorate a white baseball cap with a logo the children do themselves. We begin by demonstrating what graffiti is and teaching some practical designs. They then transfer practised designs onto a cap (with material pens) creating a designer cap they get to keep. This is by far our most popular graffiti art workshop.
Other graffiti workshops include creating a canvas or individual pieces using nice card, acrylic paints and brushes. This works our cheaper as many schools already have these materials. So we don’t have to charge additional material costs.
These workshops are also useful for embodying citizenship, anti bullying and other issues. By making the stylised words relative to a given topic, the topic is naturally embodied.
Graffiti at one time had a reputation for being vandalism, but we teach how it is now an art form and that it is wrong to scrawl on buses or walls etc without permission.
Another interesting workshop we do covers graphic novels. We create novels with graphics that children work on in small groups. This mixes literacy and art and is a fantastic educational arts activity.
Our workshops give a positive message, teaching participants this genre as an art form, only to be created where it’s allowed. We also ensure we use the safest materials. These workshops can last one to two hours or longer if you are creating a mural. Get in touch, to book a graffiti art workshop today.
We have artists based in the North West, the midlands and greater London so we can deliver these activities in most parts of England and Wales. DBS checked and liability insured graffiti artists will travel to your school, children’s or youth centre or any other venue to deliver.
These workshops and activities are also popular for kid’s parties. Children really engage with this and we have delivered the aforementioned caps activity for several parties.
The graffiti genre is popular with children and young people of all ages. It is also bespoke and can be organised in a way that it suits any age or ability including adults and children with disabilities.
Our main graffiti artist is an award winning artists from whom we have received reams of positive feedback having worked with Nugent Education for a decade. Put differently, we are an organisation that you can trust to deliver fantastic children’s creative arts activity.
