Campbellsville High School are students are learning how to draw graffiti-style art to raise social consciousness.
In Jo Ann Harris’s art classes, students are studying controversial art subjects such as whether copying a person’s artwork is ethical and if they believe graffiti is art.
Students recently learned about graffiti-style art made popular by many artists. They studied art made by Banksy, an England-based graffiti artist.
After discussing whether they believe graffiti is art, students were asked to think about something they would be willing to lose their freedom for. Then, they were asked to make a graffiti-style drawing based on that.
Students are creating art depicting love, religion, the environment, family, freedom of speech and more.
