Online Graffiti Art Classes for April


Due to many schools being closed throughout April, I have received numerous requests to host some form of my real world graffiti classes. I have tried to familiarize myself, as much as possible, with the Zoom platform and I think I am ready. I will be hosting 4 classes a week for 2 weeks. These classes are set up for interested middle school students up to adults of any age. You can take as many classes or as few as you wish.

Pay What You Can - Pay When You Can
I know times are tough right now (that's why I'm trying this online teaching stuff), but I want to keep working with anyone who wants to learn. That's why I'm not initially requiring a fee to register for these classes. Use the PayPal link below to donate what you can, when you can. All I ask is for you to consider that I would like to make $25 per student per class or $175 per 8 class session.
If you would like to pay it forward and help another student receive classes, please donate whatever you can using the PayPal link. Thank you.

If you can't contribute, don't worry! I'm not turning ANYONE down. Just email me for more registration info. I will leave this page and button up for those who wish to come back later when they are able.

Materials
I realize no one (including myself) can run out and buy art supplies at this time. Classes will try to accommodate everyone regardless of quality of markers or paper etc. 
The basics needed should be:
  • Paper
  • Sharpened Pencils
  • Eraser
  • Markers (of any kind)
  • A quiet room
  • Good computer with decent internet connection
I will provide a PDF of examples and other material for each class, which can be either printed out or not.

Schedule
We will be devoting the first 15 minutes to joining the class and familiarizing ourselves with the Zoom platform. The next hour will be used for working our way through the lesson plan and the last 15 minutes will be a question and answer period.
