A Step Forward artist ran two days of workshops for young people participating in National Citizen Service, for the ‘Learn a New Skill’ part of the programme. Keith Hopewell, a resident artist at our Unit3 Studio, designed a session to provide information and introduce the young participants to the artistic potential of the spray can.
Graffiti workshops are often requested by partner organisations – with the art form being current and appealable to the youth.
The daylong session began with a slideshow of examples of the various possibilities using the medium, such as furniture design, clothing, portraiture and professional murals.
The young people explored using word in art and sketched ideas, which they applied to a wall space in the afternoon – The results were outstanding!
