Legal Graffiti in Germany
I just read the most amazing article linked from twitter. Graffiti is now legal in Germany, and they are offering courses for seniors to take up street art.
Seniors with Spray Cans, click:
Berlin, Hamburg and Munich are three of the hotspots for graffiti art.
Quote from the article:
"Seniors who take part in graffiti courses can benefit emotionally and physically, says Anders, though she cautions that they must also possess a certain level of fitness to start. The social setting of group courses can benefit retirees who lack daily personal contact through the workplace or those who have lost a partner, for instance. But the benefits don't end there.
Anders explains that there also physical advantages. "Graffiti is an activity that requires a lot of movement, like bending and stretching," she says. "It can also potentially strengthen hand-eye coordination." (end quote)
Legal graffiti ... what's next, right?
