PP Summer Workshop | The city as a canvas: the art of graffiti in New York


Bring a pencil and your artistic eye as we explore the history of this vibrant, local art movement and meet the “writers” of New York City who made graffiti a global phenomenon.

Led by Museum educators, participants in this virtual workshop will explore sketches from artist books, photographs of large-scale pieces, as well as works on canvas, and respond creatively through guided drawing prompts.

Open to educators of all grades and subjects, this workshop will link to curricula on a wide range of topics and feature engaging activities to develop students’ language and interpretation skills.

FREE. Registration required. 1.5 CTLE Hours.


We’ve created a resource sheet for this program, including information on the MCNY resources and exhibits featured in this workshop, additional sources on Martin Wong, graffiti in New York City, and more!
