Art Now

Street Art!

Today was our last day at Christie’s education. We had Sergio Pardo Lopez as our guest speaker. He works for the Department of Cultural Affairs in the city of New York and explained to us all about public art.

In the afternoon, we headed to Bushwick to explore some street art. After getting some inspiration from the murals we saw around, we went to a studio where we painted our own graffiti mural. The students had so much fun! We learned how to use the sprays and make thicker or thinner lines. After some practice, we painted our piece of art. We were so proud of it! Everybody wanted to keep it so we came up with the idea of cutting it up in many art pieces. Before we cut it we said that we would cut the piece with the condition of bringing it altogether again one day. This sounds like a reunion will be happening!
