The students will be using a combination of art materials including pencils, eraser, markers, acrylic paints, paper (collage), and non-toxic spray paint mixers.

The highlight of this graffiti art camp is the learning of the graffiti style which may be expressed with paint – acrylic painting, acrylic paint pouring, and non-toxic spray can painting.
