wow, diane's q: graffiti/public is fascinating. some
think graffiti=vandalism or eyesore yet not many get
upset about billboards and advertisements
everywhere...
in gainesville we have a concrete wall several blocks
long where grafitti is ok. its on a main
thoroughfare. one of the longest lasting sections was
a memorial.

love the graffiti names idea for back to school
portfolio designs! would be a great way to start the
year - what is art/an artist?

stencil street art also intriguing for lesson
possibilities! very similar to printmaking
(silkscreen)? kids could study stencil street art,
categorize by communicative statement, style...then
make their own. planning: what is the message? is
it supposed to make viewers smile, think, act???
where is it ok to put stencils, not ok?

thank you all for sharing this great stuff!
