Community Art (Gentlemen’s Graffiti)
WE USE THE WORD “GRAFFITI” TO IDENTIFY CREATIVE EXPRESSION THROUGH MULTIPLE ART FORMS. THOUGH IT IS A FORM ITSELF WE INCORPORATE OUR OWN UNIQUE STYLE IN ALL PROJECTS & TASK.
HIGH QUALITY & Engaging PROGRAMMING:
Gentleman’s Graffiti focuses on enriching black male youth & culture by establishing a disciplined art practice, supporting and respecting the community, and utilizing their creativity. This program is also open to other ethnicities and cultures.
SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION;
One on one instruction is central to our program. We limit the number of youth to 4 to 6 maximum ; ages 8-13 in the program at any given time.
Safe Space + Academic Support;
Gentlemens Graffiti is a safe gathering place for when youth come together. They “own” the space by virtue of higher commitment and an increasing desire to do better in school, at home, and in the community.
“We support our gentlemen and their aspirations (ups or downs) by finding/providing resources and guiding them to the finish and starting line.”
What We ABOUT”
Gentlemen’s Graffiti is a all boys program of artist workshops, museum and gallery visits, and youth artmaking in the community using a range of mediums/techniques in efforts to create a safe space for social and emotional development through the arts.
