Guerilla Art

In term 1, grade 8 students explore Guerilla Art and made thier own!

 

Essential Question:  Why is “guerilla art” becoming increasingly popular and what can its social impact be?

Objective:  Student will create a piece of “guerilla art” on a small packaging tag with a theme and various materials of their choice. Students will install the artwork in a public space in the community and reflect on the experience.

Guerilla art is a fun and insidious way of sharing your vision with the world. It is a method of art making which entails leaving anonymous art pieces in public places. It can be done for a variety of reasons, to make a statement, to share your ideas, to send out good karma, or just for fun. My current fascination with it stems from a belief in the importance of making art without attachment to the outcome. To do something that has nothing to do with making money, or listening to the ego”. … “Now I am not necessarily advocating that you do anything illegal or potentially life threatening. But there is something wonderfully sneaky about leaving some form of art in public places. I like knowing that at some point in time someone might receive a little surprise in the form of a random message from a

stranger, or a doodle in an unexpected place.” Keri Smith
