Experience hosted by Pierre

2 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English, Spanish, French

What you'll do

This graffiti session will allow you to paint your own fresco in two hours only using paint cans . It is broken down into several exercises made to help you become familiar with graffiti techniques.

It is a unique opportunity to try out graffiti legally without worrying about the equipment and such an unusual way to discover Lille.

First of all, my friend Erwan and I will introduce you the place where we will paint : Lille's southern skate-park is emblematic in the street art scene. Here graffiti is allowed!
After presenting the equipment, you will start practicing on the skate-park walls with spray cans. We will give you tips and tricks to adopt the right moves and progress quickly.
Then, inspired by the graffiti around you and your interests, you will draw on paper what you want to paint on the wall.
Finally, we will help you make this sketch on the walls of Lille's skate-park, each of you at its own pace, receiving special care from us two.

Hello, I'm Pierre :)

I have been passionate about graffiti since I was eleven years old. This is the age at which I went painting with my older brother for the first time. I like everything about this art: the smell of the cans, the feeling when you press the cap, the satisfaction of creating and sharing this art... That's all I do, even when I travel. I get my inspiration from what other artists do in New York, London, Prague... What forms do they use? What colours? What are they trying to express?

With this activity, my objective is twofold: to make you practice a new discipline and share with you my vision of street art.

I know how challenging this activity can be for some people. Don't worry ! I am very patient and smiling. I like to see people succeed when faced with new challenges. Come on! Join us!

This was so fun. My boyfriend and I had a great time, Pierre was very knowledgable and nice and spoke great English. We got a chance to learn a new skill and the hosts were super encouraging and patient. Definitely would recommend, great value for money and a really fun afternoon.

Had an absolute blast, learned the basic techniques and how to paint something halfway decent with spray paint, and I can't even draw! Had a great fun and educational time

This was a great an unique experience. Pierre and Erwan were super friendly and helpful. I have very limited art experience, but the guys were patient and don't put any pressure on you, and I was able to make something that I was quite proud of. Highly recommended!

We signed up for a group (our family of 10) class. We were worried about it being worth our time to attend. It turned out to be one of the most treasured memories as we tried something new and unique as a family and it was so much fun for all. We would do it again in a heartbeat! Pierre was a great teacher and we loved his sense of humor. If you want to come away with a whole new appreciation of a a new art form, sign up today!

I have to say, when we booked this activity I wasn't sure about it. I was going with my 2 brothers and did have concerns about how enjoyable it would be. Yet I should have not had any concerns at all! Pierre was excellent and really did open up our understanding to street art. His instructions were excellent and we had a great time converting our paper drawings to the wall. As a new experience I couldn't recommend this enough. It was perhaps the highlight of our stay in Lille and would 100% recommend it even to those that are not sure. Well done to Pierre for making it so enjoyable and relaxed. Top man!

Une expérience unique et originale qui nous a plongées, ma fille de 11 ans et moi-même, dans l'envers du décor d'un univers qui nous plait beaucoup : le Street Art! Super accueil, hôtes attentionnés et à l'écoute, passionnés et passionnants, sachant s'adapter à l'âge et au niveau de chacune... et qui ont su nous mettre tout de suite à l'aise, du début jusqu'à la fin ! Un cours particulier haut en couleurs que nous recommandons vivement à petits et grands! Encore un grand merci à Pierre et Erwan! :)
