What you'll do
This graffiti session will allow you to paint your own fresco in two hours only using paint cans . It is broken down into several exercises made to help you become familiar with graffiti techniques. It is a unique opportunity to try out graffiti legally without worrying about the equipment and such an unusual way to discover Lille. First of all, my friend Erwan and I will introduce you the place where we will paint : Lille's southern skate-park is emblematic in the street art scene. Here graffiti is allowed! After presenting the equipment, you will start practicing on the skate-park walls with spray cans. We will give you tips and tricks to adopt the right moves and progress quickly. Then, inspired by the graffiti around you and your interests, you will draw on paper what you want to paint on the wall. Finally, we will help you make this sketch on the walls of Lille's skate-park, each of you at its own pace, receiving special care from us two.
Hello, I'm Pierre :) I have been passionate about graffiti since I was eleven years old. This is the age at which I went painting with my older brother for the first time. I like everything about this art: the smell of the cans, the feeling when you press the cap, the satisfaction of creating and sharing this art... That's all I do, even when I travel. I get my inspiration from what other artists do in New York, London, Prague... What forms do they use? What colours? What are they trying to express? With this activity, my objective is twofold: to make you practice a new discipline and share with you my vision of street art. I know how challenging this activity can be for some people. Don't worry ! I am very patient and smiling. I like to see people succeed when faced with new challenges. Come on! Join us!
Everything you need to paint and draw safely will be provided (paint cans, caps, markers, pens, pencils, erasers, paper;…
