Duration: 3 hrs
This class offers an introduction to street art and freehand spray painting techniques, led by Melbourne’s street art star CAPER.
What You Will Learn
Have you ever wanted to create your own piece of street art? Our freehand workshop offers an exclusive chance to learn a variety of spraypainting techniques from a renowned street artist right here at the famous Blender Studios. The workshop will start with an artist talk from your instructor and street art demonstration where they will cover a range of different can skills to get you started on your spraypainting journey.
The spraypaint can is a challenging tool in comparison to other paint mediums and our artist is here to guide you through all the insider tricks of the trade. After a few practice activities where you will experiment with different techniques in our dedicated spraypainting venue, participants will then head back to the classroom for a short sketching and design session. Armed with your design, we will then head back outside to create our final masterpiece for the day. This workshop is perfect for anyone looking to develop their can control and learn spraypainting techniques for street art and muralism.
What You Will Make
Participants will be involved in a range of practice activities before creating their final spray painted artwork onto large panels in our ‘spraypainting garden’. The panels are too big for most people to take home, so we suggest taking some photos to document your artwork. For anyone wishing to take their panel home this is also possible for a small extra fee to cover the material cost.
