UWM student and local artist Jesse Graves is bringing street art to the Craft Centre and the timing couldn't be better as it starts to warm up out there. Check out Jesse's website for more info on mud stencils at http://mudstencils.com. You'll find some of his work and the work of others.
"I began stenciling with mud to put environmentally conscious messages in public spaces. I use mud or earth because it is a fundamental life-giving substance, logical for my messages. Mud stencils are an evolving medium, intended for art and social justice, not corporate advertisement," Jesse states on his website.
The SACC is hosting a 2-day workshop on April 24-25 (Saturday & Sunday) from 12:30-2:30pm each day. In this 2-day workshop students will learn about the growing movement of street art that is created with the environment in mind! We will discuss and learn to use environmentally-friendly materials and reclaimed materials to create our own street art. Topics include guerrilla gardening, moss graffiti, anti-graffiti, and mud stencils!
Sign up today by calling 414.229.5535 or dropping by the Craft Centre. Only $15 per person (students, faculty, staff, community members welcome)! A true bargain. Visit craftcentre.uwm.edu for more info on this workshop and others.
