Yo I dont know about everyone else out there, but this has to be the wackest LEGAL wall in the entire city. Shit everyone is hating on out of towners that come and bomb that way bombing should be done and no one is saying anyhting about local writers that do wack shit like this. DAMN what is graff coming to. haters hating on people that actually do nice shit and glorifing LOCAL writers that dont compare. That was an ill ass wall when ESPO from NY and JASE and the rest were on there.

Thats just me though!!!!!!!!!!



There were good pieces on this wall

Submitted by: Jennie Auble

UNIT: Lettering - Aesthetic issues (Is Graffiti Art?) - Keith Haring

Lesson: Graffiti Name Tag - Elements and Principles of Art

Grade level: Middle School (adaptable to elementary and high school)




Click to see larger images.


Note from Jennie: This is a good introductory lesson for 8th graders.  You could file it under design, lettering, or the artist Keith Haring and Symbolism.  I like to start the trimester with this project because it helps me to learn their names, learn about them while they brainstorm symbols/designs about themselves, and it also shows me what level they are at in their drawing and knowledge of art supplies.  For those who struggle with symbolism, they can do straight lettering and design an original tag made up only of creative lettering.  They enjoy learning about Keith Haring and the graffiti discussion is always lively.  We also hit on plagiarism and the importance of originality in the final design.  The principles are learned easily because they have to incorporate them in the design and then tell me how they emphasized the principles.  The self evaluation is like a wrap up quiz at the end of the project.


Materials: markers, Permanent black markers, colored pencil, crayon, pastel, paint (provide as many choices as you can manage)


Objectives: Students will




 Design an original tag that is representative of self



Be able to incorporate the principles of design in tag



Do some creative lettering





1.  Introduce the principles of art – Power Point & take notes on handout

2.  Introduce artist of the week – Keith Haring, look at Art & Man magazines. show PowerPoint of

     Graffiti (from Web Resources below)

3.  Talk about symbolism used today around us – power point of logos, graffiti, ancient and modern


4.  Explain assignment:






Start with a balance plan – symmetrical, asymmetrical, radial



Choose 2-3 other principles you want to emphasize



Use objective pictures, lettering or symbols or non-objective designs but make sure the final design is original and not a copy of something you have seen.  Talk about plagiarism. 



Make several thumbnail size sketches to start brainstorming ideas on scrap paper



Mini-lesson on lettering – basic block, bubble letters, using graph paper, stylized lettering



Choose one of your sketches to create in full color – size 12X18 (or whatever size paper teacher selects)



Special notes:







Draw lightly so your pencil lines don’t show through



Be careful of black because it can smear and make your colors dirty – use last! Permanent Black Marker could be used for outlining if desired.



If you paint, tape down paper to prevent curling



Pastels for backgrounds or large areas only and they will need sprayed










Storage of Projects

The Principles of Design Self Evaluation

Graffiti Tag Name Design


Name ____________________________________________                      period _______


1.  Was your design objective (a recognizable subject) or non-objective (just a design)? 


2.  Which kind of balance did you use?


Symmetrical (equal on both sides)   Asymmetrical (informal placement)   Radial (from a center point)


3.  Circle two other principles of design you think you showed in your tag


Proportion (size)                 Emphasis (one part stands out)   Variety (differences)


Rhythm (movement)            Pattern (repeating)                      Unity (goes together)


4.  Tell/describe how you used the two principles or how they show in your design:


Principle #1:  ________________________________________________________________




Principle #2:  __________________________________________________________________



How do you feel about the following? (circle one for #5 and #6)


5.  Craftsmanship –     neatly done       average           below average           poorly done


6.  Use of Class Time -    worked every day      average      below average       poor use of time


7.  Outcome:  How do you like it?  ____________________________________________________


8.  Is there anything you would do differently or change?  _______________________________________________________________________________




9.  Tell me what your “tag” stands for or the meaning behind your symbol:





Turn in this form with your project to the basket



Christian Ryan has shared this idea for high school:


High school students are constantly subjected to the cultural pedagogy of media - movies, music, television, and the internet. Part of mass media's agenda of targeting the youth market involves branding -the process of developing a brand identity that the young person would associate their values with - for instance, the Mountain Dew branding effort involves "EXTREME!" and Wild! exclamations. Teenagers are often able to associate brands simply by their corporate logos - the Nike "Swoosh" or McDonald's golden arches. I would hope to enable the student's critical media literacy by having the student disassemble the concept of corporate logos and re-appropriate the idea of "logo" for themselves. Let them know that THEY have their own values, and these values and ideas could be re-interpreted as their own personal logo - empowering the student to critically reflect their own ideas onto a piece of design. Also, we would examine instances of urban and artistic re-appropriation of the idea of "logo." For instance, the urban graffiti culture has developed "tagging" - a way of indicating the graffiti artist's personal logo in their graffiti art. Also, we would look at the Hip-Hop group Public Enemy's logo - a logo which communicates their artistic identity and message, without having the problematic issues of branding. Additionally, this project would help the students learn elements of graphic design, using digital production methods. This project allows the student to see beyond their own associations of commercial branding (Nike Swoosh, Golden Arches), see what other artists have done to graphically communicate their own identity, and then develop that personal graphic symbology for themselves.
