kiwie lowkey workshop 2021
At one point last year I got so bored that I decided to share my knowledge about spray painting. I started with my first 3 private “kiwie lowkey workshop” sessions. [Check pictures here] Somehow, it went better than expected and I’ve decided to continue the workshops in 2021 as well.
By participating, You will learn the dark magic of Graffiti and Street Art culture, how to come up with weird ideas, how to make a straight line, how to make a gradient, and how to properly use spray paint on a wall or any other surface, creating your own, possibly, first canvas artwork for the home taking. And on top of that, meet new people and have a fun time.
This workshop is meant for anyone looking for a dose of inspiration, new insights, adventures, or who is just tired from all the lockdowns.
Two types of workshops are available for reservations – a GROUP Workshop with 10 participants in the group and a PRIVATE Workshop with only one participant in the session.
