Portage High School Drawing Class Studies Graffiti

PHS-Drawing-Class-Collage-03-12-15Portage High School Drawing 1 Art class ponders the thought about Graffiti: It has existed since ancient times, and so has the controversy surrounding it- is it vandalism or is it art? Often, the only difference is a matter of gaining permission from the property owners. Whatever the intentions may be the legally of creating it is the first and most important question to be raised.

Our first piece as an artist in this genre is for our own Portage High School student to create his or her own personalized signature, also known as their "tag". This is the most common form of Graffiti. A good tag will showcase an Artist's talent and skill, along with understanding 2 point perspective.
