Graffiti History and Aliases
The first assignment of this unit is for students to come up with their own alias. Their alias can be a symbol or word designed graffiti style.
Keith Haring- Doodle
Students learned about the artist Keith Haring. They were then challenged to create quick doodles in their sketchbooks. They only had five minuets to work, they then switched to someone else's sketchbook and worked for five minutes. The purpose of this exercise is to get the students to loosen up and work quickly. Also, graffiti artists have to work with an existing surface, similar to this exercise.
