During residencies with Hugo, students will create murals that are expressive and representative of their environments, ideas, and aspirations. His residencies introduce participants to spray paint, including learning safety and different techniques about its use. Hugo’s activities involve collaborative work among participants, and he teaches them about the history of graffiti writing, as well as looking to graffiti and street art contemporaries for further inspiration.
