Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris recently launched a new collection called Pressionism:Graffiti Masterpieces on Canvas. Riding on the same theme, today’s workshop for the toddlers was about Graffiti. We started the morning with the kids doodling on a large black paper with bright and vibrant liquid chalk and chalk. We talked about the scribbles and the colors they made on the paper. It was a good time for them to warm to each other and also to ease into the activity for the morning.
I did a slide show to run through a brief history of what graffiti was about and showed moms and kids pictures of various types of graffiti and then proceeded to introduce a few techniques of graffiti art which I felt was age appropriate.
We did scratching, doodling, spraying and stenciling for this class on cardboard boxes so that there would be a sturdy and large surface for them to work on. We installed the 3 pieces of board together to create a house structure like how most graffitis that we see today are like…mostly on walls of a building.
