A 'lil Rain can't stop Hip Hop

February 26, 2018

The Spring 2018 'Art, Advertising & Hip Hop' course got a chance to express themselves using the hip hop element - graffiti and street art, aka “Bombing”!  Despite the rain, the students enjoyed an art talk from Phil Shafer (Sikesstyle) and then got to work other own collaborative pieces!  The students worked in groups of five and were challenged to not only come up with their own graffiti signatures but to also create a crew name and message that had to be conveyed in their works.  Upon completion each group had to explain the meaning behind their piece and what message they hoped to conveyed regarding the future of hip hop!  Next Up – The Hip Hop Immersion on April 7th!
