What a great experience! Not only do you learn about graffiti but you create your own graffiti and your own identity in that world. Highly recommend this!

This was a great insight into a lifestyle and art style that is not always available to the general public. I also felt that special attention was paid to the diversity of our participants. A wonderful experience. This is what an airbnb experience should be.

The class was very fun ! The instructor was very informative and personable. Although it’s creative expression some guided pictures would help , once outside on the wall. Loved that we got to work inside and take a piece home. Really enjoyed!

Great unique experience while visiting DC! Asad is extremely talented and I definitely appreciated the personal stories he told me. Learned a ton of history about DC, graffiti origin and the different techniques. Overall I enjoyed the experience and would recommend for anyone that is into graffiti or looking to learn how to do graffiti!

I really enjoyed learning about the history of graffiti art and how it's evolved. I also enjoyed learning about the graffiti culture in D.C. It was the perfect balance between storytelling, educational/historical lecture, and interactive art. I walked away feeling like I had a better understanding or graffiti as a whole.
