Drawing / Mixed Media / Waterbased / Abstract

Join the Porthmeor Art Collective and explore the gritty streets of 1980’s New York, and the graffiti artists who told its story.

Meet your group at 4:30pm each Tuesday for an hour online session with our Youth Tutor and share your work for guidance and feedback.

Within this workshop we go to the concrete filled pavements of New York, exploring the colourful world of graffiti and the art of the 1980’s. We will create exciting artworks that bridge word and image together, telling stories about ourselves and the world around us.
