Bring a pencil and your artistic eye as we explore the history of this vibrant, local art movement and meet the New York “writers” who made graffiti a global phenomenon.
Led by Museum educators, participants in this virtual workshop will explore artist sketches, large-scale room photographs, as well as works on canvas, and respond creatively through guided drawing prompts.
Open to educators of all grades and subjects, this workshop will make curriculum connections across a wide range of topics and introduce engaging activities to develop students’ language and interpretive skills.
FREE. Registration required. 1.5 hours CTLE.
