We started our activity in the Grade 8th classes with these writings in graffiti style. Every student wrote the word ART, taking inspiration from this previous lesson. Following one of the many tutorials we can find online, students drew the letters in accordance with the instructions we can see below. We ‘ve found this interesting example on the helpful website GraffitiDiplomacy.com. In addition to these 4 steps we added the colors on the letters and the background.
Step 1 and 2: Write on the word ART in a linear style and then draw sharp bars or soft balloons around each letter in order to thicken it:

Step 6: in order to enhance your drawing and bring your writing out you can cut it out along the outline, and paste it on a colored cardboard:
