Sprayers use the term "character" to describe figurative representations in graffiti paintings. The figures are often comic-like in design. However, they can also be photorealistically painted creatures or objects. Typical "characters" are, for example, comic figures, animals, B-boys or monsters.
In this cool workshop you will start with exciting information about the history and basics of graffiti and character design as well as the basics of colour theory. 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 work on your first sketches, find your own motif and transfer it to the canvas with acrylic pencils.
Of course, you can take your finished work of art home with you afterwards.
