Urban Arts Workshops for Teens: Can Control
“Can Control - Urban Arts Upcycling” with the Estria Foundation
This 2-hour workshop will introduce participants to the basics of lettering styles and characters. We will host a few battles in the class where students can practice before getting a chance to use their letter skills and artistic style to upcycle a spray can into a personalized work of art. Using paint markers, each participant will get their own spray can to embellish with their letters and characters.
Can Control is the last in a series of urban art workshops co-hosted by Oakland Public Library and the Estria Foundation. For a full list of workshops click here.
Workshops accompany a year-long Youth Mural Arts Exhibit on display at four Oakland Public Library locations, November 2013-2014. For exhibit locations and details click here.
