Fantastic experience! Loved the history and inside scoop on graffiti culture. especially enjoyed becoming a graffiti artist, including our graffiti battle. Would strongly recommend!

This is a great way to learn something new, expand your horizons, and get creative. I really enjoyed Sheepz’s approach to teaching - he shares the background and etiquette of graffiti art in a thorough and well thought out way. It was really nice to stay inside the studio and be warm and sit on a couch for this part, during an uncharacteristically cold Austin night. Going outside to the practice area was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. The T-shirt is an interesting souvenir.

Sheepz was our graffiti guide and I cannot say enough about what a remarkable experience this was. My bf and I were expecting just to spray paint some stuff. And, while we did get to do this...what we got was WAAAAY BETTER. I'm a bit of a nerd, and Sheepz gave us a compressed course in the history of graffiti. It was fascinating to learn about the community of graffiti artists as well as the rules. And the best thing was...HE LOVES THIS ART FORM...and it came through in every syllable. Have you ever been around someone who loves what they do? You can get a contact high from their enthusiasm. If you are remotely considering this excursion, just book it. Your companions will not only thank you, but this will become an experience they will use as a metric for your future outings.

I was in Austin for ACL and saw this experience when I was looking at active things to do. It was very interesting and super fun to try doing some work. I had a great time and Sheepz really personalized the experience. Great activity for the family.

Sheepz was the best! A lot of knowledge re the history, but kept it light. An amazing time tagging and spraying!

Super enjoyable afternoon with Sheepz. He’s super informative and friendly. We learned all about the graffiti culture. An eye opening view of a world that I had no idea existed before this experience. The hands-on graffiti was super fun and engaging. Highly recommend!

What a fantastic experience and introduction to the elements of graphitti and the culture behind it. We just loved it! Sheepz was a great educator on the subject and we loved creating our own wall art!

The graffiti experience was very well done. We learned about the history, culture of and differences in tagging and street art from an engaging professional artist, we had a chance to create some, and we each got a cool customized tshirt. My 11 and 8 year old grandchildren got into it, got to ask lots of questions, were inspired, and learned more about the art and artists in their town.

Was one of the best and most unique experiences that we had ever done. It turned out to be just my husband and myself which made the experience even more amazing. It was so informative, but mostly just so fun and original! Would recommend this to anyone looking for a truly different experience.

Sheeps was great. We had a fantastic time learning about the history of graffiti, all the different types and getting to try a little ourselves. We did this for a team celebration event and it was something unique and educational.
