What you'll do

We will take an alley walk in a genuine graffiti "yard." We'll view walls decorated with graffiti and develop an understanding of the difference between street art, modern graffiti and gang writing, as well as the history of each in LA. By the end of our walk, we'll be able to recognize the differences between the four main forms of modern graffiti and understand its visual vocabulary, a skillset that any contemporary city dweller will find useful.

Where you'll be

We'll meet at Holy Grounds Coffee and Tea to have coffee and talk, then proceed to El Serreno along the railroad tracks to see and discuss the many walls painted in different styles. This is exactly the kind of out-of-the-way industrial place that graffiti writers love to beautify!
