Get some graffiti in your life

Ever walked by a mural on the side of a building and thought, "hey, that's cool"? (before the Mayor's Graffiti Blasters crew came and ruined it, of course). Chicago artist Revise CMW wants to bring out the graffiti artist inside every one of the people who signs up for his Street Art Class, which starts this Sunday (3-5 p.m.) at The Galaxie. For four weeks (April 26, May 3, May 10 and May 17), students will learn design, lettering, spray-can art, stenciling and more. The class is open to all ages, and costs $125, which includes all supplies except for a sketch pad and marker.

Enrollment is limited to 12 students, so sign up now. If you don't make it in, the next session begins May 31.

Graffiti is an art form, and the wall pictured above is fantastic. It all depends if the owner of the building approves. If not then it's vandalism. Nobody has the right to mark up someone else’s property. Art is one thing but in most cases, gang graffiti aside, the graffiti that has been popping up has been crap. Hit & run stuff on apartment buildings just for the sake of doing it. That's not being an artist, that's being a jerk. If left to the taggers the city would look like a hell hole. If it looks like something pictured above and the building owner approves cool. If not then the cops should bust them and fine them. It's not their property.
