Drawing students took to the streets for a culminating course activity this week. Lead by Lindsay and William, the students explored underground graffiti tunnels in the Le Cure neighborhood of Firenze. These tunnels are well known and serve as an art gallery, with local artists maintaining it and sharing the space. There is a waiting list to be granted a workspace within the tunnel, so the drawing students did the next best thing and created a collaborative graffiti project to install at the entrance to the tunnel. After almost two hours of careful work, studenti connected their work into one long piece and mounted it outside the tunnel for all of Florence to enjoy. They were excited to work with a new material and leave a piece of their (he)art behind for others to see. Check out their work below!
