Description

Event Run Down: 

First half hour: summarized history and evolution of modern graffiti as it relates to hip-hop culture, followed by a brief but thorough education on the various style categories of graffiti: most commonly known as tags/handstyles, throw-ups/bubbles, straight letters/simples and finally wild style pieces.

Second Hour: Paul will demo each of those categories and the purpose they serve in the streets. Following the demo, the group will create their own mini-piece. Paul will walk around helping people and showing them how to make things funkier and have more fun with it. The group will have the chance to share what they have created.

Hosted at the Community Creative Center in downtown Fort Collins as part of Hip Hop History Week.

Creative Community Center is located at 200 Mathews St, Fort Collins, CO 80524
