Students learned about urban art and social responsibility while creating a graffiti-style "tag." Students first learned about the history of graffiti and then discussed the controversy surrounding it -- is it vandalism or is it art? After looking at a multitude of popular graffiti artists' work, students looked at and emulated four popular styles of lettering including: bubble letters, block letters, wildstyle and calligraffiti. Students were then invited to design a signature (tag) using lettering of their own design.
