Private Graffiti Teacher

We will start on fundamentals of letter structure, color theory and composition. I will introduce the tools and how to properly implement visual effects and techniques using those tools onto the students desired media of choice.

We will progress from the basics of drawing techniques all the way to painting on larger canvas and possibly walls.

Paint and supplies must be made available by the student.

Brendan is a lovely instructor. He provides a very casual experience but without skipping on the technical know how.

Private Graffiti Teacher

I have been a graffiti writer, muralist, and artist for the past 15 years.

I have been an elementary school educator for the past five years, and recently completed my Masters in Teaching degree for secondary education. Spray paint and education are my two passions, and working with students interested in beginning or honing their graffiti skills is a joy.

Graffiti art instruction will be co-constructed based on student interests and areas of focus. I am really interested in assisting students develop their own unique styles while being rooted in strong foundations of letter form and graffiti tradition. A curriculum outline could include:

a) Blackbooking foundations, such as developing strong handstyles, throw-up styles, and dead letters piecing leading to wildstyle piecing
b) Art theory, incorporating the elements and principles of art
c) Painting overviews, including techniques, can control, and cap/ aerosol brand breakdown
d) Graffiti history and cultures, including ...

About Sean

I live in Seattle, WA, where I am a middle school social studies teacher and a freelance muralist. I have been been painting for the past 15 years, and teaching for the past five years.

Private Graffiti Lessons Near You

Graffiti might be one of the most divisive forms of art. Many would argue that graffiti is vandalism. Separate from inexperienced individuals who scribble, tag, or deface property, graffiti art is a true form of artistic expression. Graffiti art sometimes is placed without permission, but there are also areas that are specifically designated for graffiti. These designated graffiti zones transform into open-air galleries, where anyone can participate and anyone can enjoy the art. 

Graffiti's one of the oldest art forms. In fact, the word graffito is actually an archeological term. The 20,000-year-old cave paintings at Lascaux are graffiti. Several graffiti drawings and inscriptions also decorate the Roman Catacombs and the ruins of Pompeii. Today, graffiti artists have used the fo

...

rm's accessibility to reach the masses. Artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Banksy, Lady Pink, and others have all achieved fame with graffiti art. 

Why Sign Up for Graffiti Classes?

One of the primary reasons people choose to make graffiti art is that it's the most accessible form of modern art. Yes, plenty of art's on display, but there's not much art that's available for everyone to view. Most art's stuck inside museums, galleries, and people's homes. As a result, not many people see it. Graffiti, however, is different. Everyone who passes by a bit of graffiti art on the side of a building or an entire mural on an overpass will see the art and have a moment to appreciate its beauty or message. 

Although graffiti, when done without permission on public or private structures, is against the law, there are plenty of legal outlets for graffiti art. So, don't let the pejorative connotation dissuade you from learning this unique, empowering style of art. Graffiti may have once been seen in a negative light, but the truth is true graffiti art has the power to brighten up a neighborhood, spread positivity, and add a bit of beauty to everyone's life. 

The Best Way to Learn Graffiti and What You'll Practice in Lessons

Of course, you can find lots of free graffiti lessons and tutorials online, but the best way to learn this unique artistic style is with a private graffiti teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and the sort of personalized instruction that simply isn't available in a group art class or in online videos. With immediate feedback, you'll overcome personal challenges and improve quickly. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Teachers completely customize each lesson to meet the student's needs, keeping in mind the student's existing knowledge, current skill level, interests, and goals. For example, graffiti classes for adults differ in terms of course content and teaching methods from graffiti lessons for kids. Your teacher will keep you motivated and interested, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Graffiti

If you're new to graffiti art, then beginner lessons are right for you. In these classes, your graffiti tutor will introduce you to the basics of this unique art form. You'll learn everything you need to know to get started. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Materials and basic techniques
  • Introduction to lettering
  • Color theory

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Graffiti

If you have some experience making art, but would like to improve your stylistic techniques, then intermediate lessons are right for you. In these classes, your teacher will introduce you to more challenging techniques and artistic principles, designed to take your graffiti art to the next level. In these lessons, your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Make 3-dimensional art
  • Create stencils
  • Clever composition

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Graffiti

If you're already a skilled artist but would like to further develop your unique style or hone your techniques, you'll have the ability to do so with a professional artist in advanced lessons. Content included in advanced courses depend on the student's goals and interests, but your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Develop a personal style
  • Thinking about symbolism and meaning
  • Work more deliberately with surface and structure

How to Find a Graffiti Teacher Near You

If you're ready to learn how to make eye-catching graffiti-style art, then working with a private teacher will give you a strong start. Luckily, finding a private graffiti tutor on TakeLessons is easy. A quick search will lead you to a long list of teachers who offer private lessons online and in-person to students of all ages and artistic abilities. Before choosing a teacher, we recommend browsing through several profiles and reading reviews left by other students.

The cost of graffiti classes varies, but most teachers base rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many teachers to choose from, you'll be able to find someone whose classes fit your budget and schedule. Plus, you'll find that investing in private lessons pays off fast, as your artistic abilities and style improve after your first few lessons.
