5th Grade - Graffiti

I like this project to start the year because it gives 5th graders plenty of space to focus on details and background, and explore their own concepts in their artwork.  We start off with a slideshow of various graffiti examples and talk a lot about how the artists add visual interest with colors, value, and lines.  We also talked about how it's important to graffiti a word that's meaningful.

So the fifth graders chose an idea that was important to them and took care to make sure their artwork reflected how important they thought that idea was.  Check out some of the outstanding examples.
