Based in Toronto's Junction neighborhood, 4CATS is an art studio offering graffiti classes for kids. In addition to being introduced to street art techniques when they join a 10 class program, kids can also host birthday parties at the facility or can collaborate with the whole family to create a tagged masterpiece.
Titled 'Express Yo Self,' this graffiti class for kids equips participants with the art tools and skills needed to become a creative street artist. While graffiti was often synonymous with vandalism in the past, the popularity of street art icons like Banksy and OBEY founder Shepard Fairey have made it a more respected art form in recent years.
In addition to its famous Graffiti Alley, Toronto is home to a myriad of commissioned street art projects, making graffiti an expressive art form that young generations want to take part in.
