Mr. Sacco's eighth grade art
students created tags using color pencils on black paper.
A graffiti writer's tag is his or her personalized signature. Students viewed
graffiti tags for inspiration and were introduced to the field of typography
letter forms are used as an element of expression and design.
To create their tags students made sketches of letters in various styles before
settling on a final type design. Students then added additional design elements
to create a truly personal tag. The final step was to use value shading and
color blending to make these artworks vibrant and exciting.
