Event description

Description

While graffiti was once associated with unflattering terms like vandalism, scribble, and illegal, times have changed — today, graffiti art has evolved into a powerful artistic movement filled with beautiful, legal, works of art. Now's your chance to see the process from beginning to end, and contribute your artistic touch along the way.

Join New York Adventure Club as we immerse ourselves in the art of graffiti with John Macchione (@hellawise_designs), a local graffiti artist based in Long Island who specializes in full-wall murals of fantastical creatures and animals.

Led by John, our introduction to graffiti art will include:


  • An overview of graffiti art and its evolution from scribbled name tags, often done illegally, to legal multi-colored and multi-layered artistic murals commission by prominent stores and businesses
  • A discussion around spray paint fundamentals, from how to hold a spray paint canister to proper arm and body movement techniques
  • A walkthrough and demonstration of the graffiti art-making process, from beginning to end
  • Interactive opportunities to practice your graffiti art skills before applying your newfound abilities to a large group-designed mural


Gloves, face masks, and art supplies will all be provided.


See you there!


*Long pants and closed-toe shoes are required as graffiti art site is located in a wooded area

A NY Adventure Club Brand Ambassador will be waiting in front of the Penn Station McDonald's (to the left of the LIRR ticket window, across from the 1/2/3 subway entrance) between 10:05am - 10:15am if you want to travel together.

We'll take the Long Island Rail Road train departing at 10:25am from Penn Station, and transfer to the Oyster Bay train at Jamaica Station departing at 10:51am — disembark at the Glen Street Station at 11:28am — a cab or uber will need to be taken to the graffiti art site.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the small size of the Glen St. Station platform, please note that only the doors of the first train car will open!


LIRR tickets can now be purchased via your smartphone — click here for more details.


NYC-bound trains from Glen Street Station depart at 4:35pm and 5:35pm.
