Reform: PASTE 'EM HIGH WORKSHOP
In this workshop you will learn about street art practice principles, begin to explore how to create your own paste-up art, and start mapping out your first visual campaign. You will be assigned dedicated time to practicing your new skills on our pop-up graf wall and develop a public campaign with impact.
Celebrated across the globe, street art has become a meaningful carriage of artistic expression and discussion between artists and their communities. Street artists often create artworks as a visual campaign, where multiple elements of the artwork are strategically placed in public spaces to communicate to a broader public. Predominantly street art carries a political tone or social message; this is often one of the key motivations for street artists to spread their work across the city.
