Graffiti Art Lab - March 23, 2013, 1:00 - 3:30 PM

Tompkins County Public Library 
Graffiti Art Lab – A Graffiti Workshop for Kids ages 8 to 14 
Saturday March 23, 1:00 – 2:30 PM, 
in the BorgWarner Community Room

Local graffiti artists will introduce young artists to the world of graffiti, explaining different techniques from choosing a “name” to creating a style of writing, to producing a finished piece of artwork.   Finished pieces of graffiti will be included in the forthcoming exhibit “Top 2 Bottom – a Journey Through the Elements of Hip-Hop Culture” which will be on display at the Library March 29 through June 14.  

This exhibit is part of “Hip-Hop: Unbound from the Underground – An Ithaca Community Celebration of Hip-Hop Culture."   The Graffiti Art Lab is intended to introduce younger members of the community to this art style which grew out of the culture of Hip-Hop, and to give a greater appreciation for the wonderful work that will be created at “Get-Up State” – three days of live mural painting taking place April 5 through 7 on the Cornell University Press Building at 770 Cascadilla Street.

Registration is required for the workshop as numbers are restricted.  Please call 607 272-4557 ext 232 or email with kids' names, ages and contact information.  If a large number register a second workshop will be scheduled from 3:00 to 4:30 PM on Saturday, March 23.
