drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place.[1] Graffiti ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and it has existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to
Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire.[2] In modern times, paint (particularly spray paint) and marker pens have become the most commonly used graffiti materials. In most countries, marking or painting property without the property
owner's consent is considered defacement and vandalism, which is a punishable crime. Graffiti may also express underlying social and political messages and a whole genre of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles. Within hip hop
culture, graffiti has evolved alongside hip hop music, b-boying, and other elements.[3] Unrelated to hip-hop graffiti, gangs use their own form of graffiti to mark territory or to serve as an indicator of gang-related activities. Controversies that surround
graffiti continue to create disagreement amongst city officials, law enforcement, and writers who wish to display and appreciate work in public locations. There are many different types and styles of graffiti and it is a rapidly developing art form whose value
is highly contested and reviled by many authorities while also subject to protection, sometimes within the same jurisdiction, modern style graffiti, stencil graffiti emerges, Early New York subway graffiti, graffiti pictures, graffiti shop, graffiti store, bombing,

Here's a brilliant article that expresses exactly what we have been trying to say with this

Here are 6 Reasons to Teach Graffiti in Your Art Room

Reason #2. Graffiti Is Academic

Graffiti is a combination of imagery and text. Usually, the text is a “code name,” or a unique aspect of
the individual’s identity. Students can create and design their own code name to represent an aspect of
their own identity. The compositions students create incorporate imagery demonstrating their
understanding of symbolism, metaphor, and artistic conventions.

Reason #5. Graffiti Incorporates Artistic Conventions

The three elements of graffiti are direct parallels to the first three elements of art. In graffiti, works
evolve as tags, throws, and pieces. These are in direct correlation to line, shape, and form. The study of
graffiti lettering can provide students access to artistic concepts. One-point perspective, overlap, and
depth in space are natural conventions used in graffiti. Drawing techniques are used to design the
imagery in each piece. Color theory is demonstrated through studying the color wheel and applying
various color combinations. Gradation is another convention often studied and practiced by graffiti
artists.

Reason#6. Graffiti is Everywhere

Graffiti art provides endless exemplars for students to study. Examples are abundant on local, state,
national, and global levels. Students who have more exposure to graffiti culture can also become
resident artists and experts. That kind of acknowledgment can provide the most struggling students
with a positive, academic connection to school.

In Case You’re On The Fence

A powerful art program challenges students to think about what they believe and what they have to
say to the world. Many students can disengage with the curriculum when art education only provides
“high art” exemplars that are often disconnected from their lives. The study of graffiti validates the
lives of young people who tend to favor this aesthetic and tradition. Our students can all benefit from
engaging in graffiti-inspired curricula.
