We have arrived at that time once again: the final week of one of my friend Bill's fun classes. This was the last week of his "I Don't Want to Grow Up" Class on his Purple Moose Heart Art site. I'm sad that it will be over, but once again, I had a lot of fun. And if you haven't yet taken the class, the fun has yet to begin for you! You can still sign up and take the classes anytime by going to his site here!
For the final week, Bill talked about graffiti as a positive art form and provided us with pdf files of images of brick walls we could create our own legal and safe forms of graffiti. I thought it was a very interesting topic and it brought me back to my years in Washington. Obviously, there were some not-so-positive examples of this in the form of tagging, etc. But there were some very interesting and artfully-done murals on some walls that I thought added a lot to the visual landscape of the city.
Here is my attempt at graffiti (obviously practiced on one of Bill's images from the class and accomplished without worry of being arrested, sitting at my diningroom table!)
I started out with the word "Create" and added some vines, large leaves and a flame-colored flower, keeping in mind the tropical flowers and plants I loved (and miss) so much in Washington.
