Davina Enjoys a Private Workshop at 1AM

Davina came by the gallery to enjoy a private night time workshop with our instructor Ethan. The group participated in our Graffiti workshop which includes learning how to tag and coming up with your very own tag name and also learning how to spray paint. The team got to practice on a canvas panel with pens and mops to get comfortable with their graffiti style and then they took it to our mural wall where they got to use spray paint  before painting their own mural. The murals are a great way to put your creative skills to work and make a finished piece with the help of our instructors. The group had a great time as they enjoyed food and drinks during the workshop while they bonded and got to get to know their team better. Our workshops are designed to show different groups of people how enjoyable street art can be while sharing our passion of street art and graffiti with an entirely new audience. We have a variety of different packages and options to chose from so to book your own workshop for friends and family, your company or whoever is interested contact privateevents@1amsf.com.

True Anthem’s 1AM Experience

A group from True Anthem visited First Amendment this past December and collaborated with our in house artists, learning how to tag and creating their own custom mural on our mural wall! Our workshops are a great way to bring a team together and experience something new. True Anthem learned how to tag, coming up with their own tag name and practiced on our white boards before taking their skills to the canvas. Next they got to learn about some of what makes street art so important to us and the community through our street art and graffiti history slide show. This is a great way to get inspired before teaming up with our instructor and creating a mural of their own. True Anthem practiced with the spray paint before choosing to write “Lift” for their mural that turned out great as you can see below. Our corporate team building workshops are a fun way to incorporate a creative side while bonding with team members and friends.

Menlo High Enjoys a First Amendment Workshop

 

First Amendment switches it up! Majority of our workshops are with companies and adults but this time we enjoyed our time with some high schoolers as they participate in one of our awesome workshops. Robbie our graffiti instructor started off the workshop with an introduction to street art as they learn about the history behind graffiti and street art and how it came to be so prominent, especially here in San Francisco. The introduction is a great to get the groups excited and ready to do some graffiti and tagging themselves. Menlo High decided to tag the word Knights which is their school mascot to celebrate their school and enjoy a new way to team build and learn from each other and our instructors. Our workshops are a great way to bring people together and get some creativity flowing as they tag and create their very own custom mural. Check out some progress shots and the finished piece that they collaborated with our instructor. They work together to create something unique and representational of their group.

Adobe Visits 1AM

 

Adobe visited First Amendment Gallery this November and teamed up with our instructors to create an awesome mural on our 6th street mural wall. Our workshops start with some practice tagging where they create their own logo or name to tag and then they transition to trying it out with real paint markers on canvas. After they get comfortable with their tag they move to spray paint so they can get ready to create their very own mural in collaboration with instructors. Adobe’s mural turned out great with a creative approach as they incorporated some San Francisco cityscape. Check out some photos from the event!
