Thus far, we've Dabbled in many forms of guerrilla art. We've been inspired in a street art class, soaked up possibility in a murals class, and honed the basics of knitting ( ... for guerrilla bench-covering projects, of course).
But this class channels the ephemeral nature of plants to inspire scrawls on city walls.
That's right, folks. We're exploring the subversive potential of guerrilla gardening and moss graffiti!
Make your own seed bombs to explode wild flowers, learn how to bomb vacant lots to grow veggies in your neighborhood and make a moss graffiti paste to spread your positive messages around the city in eco-friendly style. All supplies included and no artistic talent needed. Just bring your green politics and an open mind, and get ready to join the sweetest smelling guerrilla campaign the streets of Chicago have ever seen.
Dabble StudentMoss Graffiti and Seed Bombs!
"I liked that we got to make the moss paint and seed bombs; I'll never forget how to do it! I liked hearing about the teachers' own art, and I liked seeing examples of moss graffiti. Overall, it was fun to learn about these things and fun to get dirty and make the stuff.
The idea of making stencils for the moss paint was good (though I couldn't use them once I got home because I didn't blend my moss mixture well enough)."
