This has been an amazing project for my 6th graders. They absolutely love this project and when the other kids see it these hanging in the hall they ask "What grade did this?! When do we get to do it?!" So you know it's awesome! We looked at graffiti art and discussed if we felt like it was art or if it was "junk". We also talked (a lot) about vandalism and what that means and how graffiti can be done legally. We looked at popular street artists Banksy and Shepard Fairey before we began to create a graffiti inspired name picture. You can really see the student's personalities in their pictures!
