Character Design & Graffiti on Canvas | Adults

By "character", sprayers mean figurative, often comic-like, representations in graffiti images.

The workshop starts with some theory: an experienced sprayer from the Munich scene will introduce you to the history of graffiti as well as colour theory, image composition and comic influences in graffiti.

Equipped with your new knowledge, you will design your canvas background with spray cans. While the background is drying, the workshop leader will explain everything about typography and the basics of character design. You will find your own motifs and transfer them to the canvases.

Of course, you can take your individual graffiti artwork home with you afterwards.

And this is exactly how the workshop works:

Course procedure:

  1. Theory
  2. Thinking about colour concept and composition
  3. Canvas design
  4. Find motifs, typography is explained
  5. Basics of character design taught 
  6. Last step: Transfer to canvas
