About Graffiti School: A Student Guide And Teacher Manual

Product Description A comprehensive textbook on this once-demonized art form, featuring its history, lessons on making graffiti, and a teacher's manual Although the public perception of graffiti has changed radically over the last fifty years, few would have predicted that it would become the subject of this major new textbook. Christoph Ganter covers the history of informal mark-making in the public realm, from the first unauthorized characters inscribed on the ancient walls of Egypt and Pompeii to nineteenth-century Vienna, where Joseph Kyselak established himself as the father of graffiti; from New York’s “Taki 183,” the first modern graffiti writer, to more recent developments brought about by the Hip Hop revolution. The effects of the 1980s films Beat Street, Wild Style, and StyleWars are examined, as is the influence graffiti experts on today's subculture through books, magazines, and the Internet. The practical elements of graffiti are considered in later chapters, which combine tips on handling a spray can, creating a unique tag, and getting work up safely and legally with step-by-step diagrams that show how to achieve effects such as bubblestyle, blockbusters, oneliners, and wildstyle. A teacher’s manual features sample plans for a single lesson as well as guidance on structuring a longer course. 300+ illustrations, 101 in color From School Library Journal Gr 7 Up—This in-depth volume supplies readers with a lion's share of knowledge on the often-marginalized art form of graffiti. Ganter supplies a brief background of the art form, from its historical presence in ancient Pompeii through the modern-day hip-hop movement. After defining specific graffiti terminology, Ganter examines different methods and styles. The art descriptions are nicely supplemented with clear instructions along with visual examples. Ganter notably addresses the issue of legality by outlining the parameters of where readers can practice this art form without breaking any laws. The author uses general sketches in red and black ink for the first half of the book to portray the various graffiti designs. The latter portion relies upon full-on color to illustrate the different spraying styles. The book is at times somewhat technical, so those looking for a full art history of graffiti might wish to go elsewhere. Sample exercises for teachers to use in the classroom are also included. Consider purchasing for middle school and high school art classes, particularly in urban areas.—Keith Klang, Port Washington Public Library, NY Review “Its aim is not only to educate . . . gives . . . insight into the practical and theoretical aspects of graffiti.” - Complex: Art & Design “This in-depth volume supplies readers with a lion’s share of knowledge on the often-marginalized art form of graffiti.” - School Library Journal ““Public perception of graffiti has changed radically in the past 50 years. Here now is a textbook to teach students not only the history of graffiti, but also how to create it.”” - Public Art Review About the Author Christoph Ganter is a graffiti artist and teacher who works under the tag “Jeroo.” He has contributed to zines and blogs such as lectrics.fr, blog.vandalog.com, ilovegraffiti.de, streetfiles.org, and Xplicit Grafx.
