Blackbooks, Slaps, and Tags

My Appo Pre-Teens practice writing letters to develop their own personal "tag" name or signature in this street art curriculum. They were given their very own blackbooks at the beginning of the second class and eyes lit up, mouths were silent, and they were fully engaged! They are also very excited to create their own mural which we will paint on an interior wall of their club. The final idea is still marinating but is fully inspired by the lack of "Free Walls," or designated legal graffiti walls. It will be painted with chalkboard paint and become a place to practice graffiti in chalks.
