ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN EXCITING AND ALTERNATIVE WAY TO ENGAGE AND STIMULATE A CLASS OR GROUP? WHY NOT CONSIDER ONE OF OUR GRAFFITI ART WORKSHOPS!

Graffiti Workshops | Team Building Activities | Projects

Our structured street art and graffiti workshops can be fully tailored to suit every requirement! We engage groups of all ages and abilities while teaching the skills needed to create graffiti art murals.

The participants work together and create their own graffiti artwork with guidance from an experienced and professional artist. Another benefit is the option to base the work around any relevant theme, topic or issue.

We can work both in-house using our Edinburgh studio or on an outreach basis. If the workshop takes place at your venue, we’ll need you to provide adequate space as well as a surface for the mural. This could be a wall, boards or canvas – we can discuss the options with you.

WHY CHOOSE OUR GRAFFITI ART WORKSHOPS?

We have a proven track record of delivering successful art workshops with all of the above groups, both within Edinburgh and across Scotland. Using graffiti and street art is an ideal way to connect generations and explore creativity through contemporary means, breaking down traditional barriers to the art world. Learning through these purpose-designed and structured sessions whilst drawing upon and developing artistic ideas promotes confidence, creative thinking, independence and a positive attitude and disposition in the participant. All this whilst brightening up your surrounding environment!

WHAT DO YOUR WORKSHOPS COVER?

Our workshop lesson plans generally cover the following:

  • A brief history of the graffiti and street art movement
  • Brainstorming & sketching session to develop ideas *(depending on workshop length)
  • Using spray paint responsibly
  • Materials demonstration & safety brief
  • A guide to basic painting techniques
  • Creation of the artwork – this can include developing graffiti lettering, characters, backgrounds and stencils using spray paints, paint markers or a combination of both
  • Evaluation of the work completed

Workshops can be based around any relevant theme or issue of your choice – just let us know!

HOW LONG DO YOUR WORKSHOPS LAST?

Workshops are tailored to your requirements, from a short crash course to a full day or recurring weekly sessions: whatever works best for you! We recommend a half-day (3.5 hours) or a full-day (7 hours) but a minimum of 2 hours.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We can work both in-house using our Edinburgh studio or on an outreach basis.

Our studio can host large groups (50+ participants) with indoor and outdoor graffiti walls available. We can also provide tables and chairs.

We provide all the necessary artistic equipment and materials for each workshop. Please note – If the workshop takes place at your venue, we’ll need you to provide adequate space as well as a surface for the mural. This could be a wall, boards or canvas – we can discuss the options with you.

The primary tool is the traditional spray paint can, but we can also use special paint markers if required. Depending on your desired objective, be it a permanent spray painted mural or small pieces for display or to take home, we can suit the workshop to the surface. This could be painting on to walls, boards, canvasses or posters: whichever suits your space, surroundings or budget.

Whilst slightly more expensive than a normal spray can, an odourless, water-based spray paint that can safely be used indoors is now available on request!

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Every workshop is different and the requirements vary from project to project. Pricing depends on the number of participants, materials and length of the course. Please contact us for a free, no obligation quote tailored to your requirements or budget.
