Description

Come and spend some time with one of Brisbane’s finest street artists, Mik Shida. This workshop will inspire you to discover your style, break down your fears and begin translating your art to a large scale.

Graffiti has roots in team collaborations, working together to achieve a common goal. This class will be a supportive group of peers, inspiring each other to improve.
