Graffiti Art

This was a really fun lesson to do with my older students.  It started out as a 5th grade Art Club project, but snowballed into a 4th-6th grade art lesson because when the students saw what Art Club was working on they were begging me to teach them how to make graffiti letters.  And, I gave in to their requests.  However, when they began the project, they learned how difficult it was to make the letters and use the oil pastels, the success rate for this project was low :(  The students who were successful at this project were those who work hard and diligent during class time. 






 And this was my teacher sample: (of course I had to join in on the fun)

  5. We've long been inspired by urban art and have finally created a collection that pays homage to this secret addiction of ours!
