Let your students learn the basics of drawing in the style of Graffiti through this thorough product. This is a great way to teach technique of a specific style and engage all the students in your class and hook them onto art! This is great for grabbing the attention of both girls and boys, as well as right and left brains! I have used this for a few years with my students and finally have completed tweaking it and turning it into a TPT product for you to enjoy with your students as well. As well, this is a great product to use any time of year- beginning, middle or end!
