Learn more about our Graffiti workshop for girls:

The aim of Graffiti for Girls is to encourage girls to discuss art and design while advancing interpersonal relations and forging lasting social bonds. Wordculture recognizes the need for students to not only learn a language on an academic level, but also to build confidence by applying newly acquired knowledge in an authentic, real-life situation outside the classroom. Graffiti for Girls offers immediate transfer opportunities. Peer-to-peer interactions and working collaboratively accelerates bonding within the group, thus improving learning outcomes by utilizing approaches to socio-emotional, and non-cognitive skills which supports them to become agents of their own success.

 

Why Graffiti?

Lowbrow Art, such as graffiti, often has a sense of humour and/or social commentary and is accessible to people who have not had a formal training in visual art. It stimulates the child in terms of colour, shape and form, but also appeals to the growing need to articulate and discuss abstract ideas. Graffiti is an accessible, tangible method of raising cultural awareness via the English language.

The workshop will be held in English, so that the children also improve their vocabulary in this special field and get more confident in the active use of language among their peers.

I think it’s great that Wordculture is expanding the children’s program. My daughter is learning French here with enthusiasm, even though she had a lot of problems with the language at the beginning. We will certainly try other courses at Wordculture!
