A wall with graffiti

9mag14_71

An interesting experience with mixed media has been realized by students of grade 8. We studied the contrast between light and shadow and we drew a picture with sharp shapes in black and white. First we drew the figure on tracing paper with a black marker, copying it from a photo and making a clear distinction between lights and shadows. Afterward we drew a wall on a white sheet using the black ink with a stylus pen: to give an effect like “dirty” on the wall, we have buffered the ink drawing with a damp paper towel. To complete the drawing we added an inscription in “graffiti” style, writing our names with colored felt-tip pens.

  1. Sono bellissimi! Good idea 😉
    Ciao Miriam.

  2. You would NOT believe the project that I just did with my students and how much it looks almost exactly the same! I swear I didn’t see this until now on Pinterest. Very amusing!

    • Hi Susan! Now I’m curious to see your works!! thanks for the comment and keep in touch, perhaps we’ll find other similar ideas! 😉

  3. what did you use to affix the tracing paper “stencil” to the white “wall”??? glue?? acrylic medium?

    • Hi Carol! I used simple stick glue, the glue must be not too liquid… You could try and tell me if you find some other suitable material for glue it 🙂

      • I tried acrylic medium, thinking it would be the most transparent, but the tracing paper curled badly and the medium that squished out slightly was glossy and that bugged me too…. I will try the glue stick!! Thank you so much for your website. I truly love it. Greetings from California!!

        • Of course with stick glue will be better!
          Thanks for greeting from California!! I would like to visit your country, it is one of my next plans!! 🙂
