Write4Gold by Vanessa York


Why is the article name "Write4Gold"? Because people get to write on the wall and get to win money for the prize!

Is Graffiti illegal? In some places Graffiti can be illegal but in other places it can be considered as Art

Can graffiti be considered as art? I think it can because a lot of talented people are really good at Art

What is the main message in this poem? I think that the main message is that Graffiti can be special in many different ways but vandalising walls and buildings ain't right...

How did the author of the book and article think about Graffiti? They dont think Graffiti is to special

If you were designing a graffiti image about our environment what will you design (E.g plastic bags in a shape of whales) I would design garbage in a shape of a blooming flower!
