Graffiti Zone artist work in whatever mediums they are interested in. Our artists paint, sculpt, dance, sing, make videos do photography and more! In addition to that we do community mural every summer to brighten up our neighborhood.
Graffiti Zone artists learn job skills through putting on art shows. They learn how to sell their artwork; they help write letters for donations, call store managers for support and learn to work as a team to put the art show on. They also work on money management and open their own bank accounts with the money from their art sales.
We want youth interested in art to be able to experience and learn what it is like to be a real artist. To accomplish this youth are required to put on their own art show after each project. In addition we have 2 big art shows a year where they can show their art along side adult artists.
Graffiti Zone encourage youth to try several different mediums of art. We have had guest art teachers in dance, film, spoken word, sculpture, mixed media, theater and more.
Graffiti Zone helps youth prepare for the future job market. Artists learn sales, telemarketing, event planning, budgeting, fundraising and marketing through arts promotion.
Graffiti Zone encourages kids to make personal goals. Whether it has to do with school, finding a job or just simply saving money for something they want, we guide them through the steps of setting and achieving their goals.
We encourage kids to feel a part of and have a voice in their community. Through outdoor murals, gardens and clean up days, kids inspire their neighborhs to get involved.
Pardon our dust. We are under construction.
