Urban Street Art Lab
New York City is home to some of the most beautiful works of street art, especially in our home, Brooklyn! In this class students will draw inspiration from community art to create their own art pieces and learn about culture, style, and technique, breaking through the negative perceptions of the amazing art form. Students will explore techniques of painting, drawing, etc. & mural advertising like Colossal Media. This class is part art, part design, and part exploration of the neighborhood with field trips. We will talk about and explore the different reasons and styles of public art ranging from architecture and advertising, to memorialization and individual expression.
