“Street Art 101” at the NCMA Day 2

We started today's adventure in street art creation by taking a tour of the museum. "What street art is in the museum?" you might ask. None, but there is still cool art that uses new materials and has street art qualities so off we went. 

I'm not sure if you can tell by looking at the picture but this work of art is a plane made out of lots of butterflies. 

Devorah Sperber's Mona Lisa made out of thousands of spools of thread. 

Funky colors and glitter!

When we got back to the studio, there was still some stencil cutting to do... but not much. so we went straight to it.

It wasn't long before some of the stencils were done so we headed outside with our spray paint. 

It is most important to always check which way the nozzle is facing before you start spraying. "Do I have paint on my face?" was a common question for the day. Answer was "Yes, and in your hair ,and on your shirt, and some of it actually got on your stencil."

Here are a few of the completed stencils.

She just finished spraying and is now pulling up the stencil to reveal the work beneath.

And here is the end result.

We also took a few moments to spray cups so we can do some cup rocking tomorrow.

This is a practice piece. Tomorrow, we'll take it to the fence.

See you then!
