-----------------------------------------------Pro checklist
1. How does street art positively impact a community? - It helps people do
non verbal communication. It has a meaning in some Street arts. And it is
also fun to look at it. Like this one is saying that we should have peace so we
dont need to have war.

2. How would a community be changed for the worse if there was no street
art? - There would be a lot of different things. Like wars can happen,
Slavery can happen. 3. What should happen to street art that already
exists?- We should erase the street arts that is painted in the wall without
permission. 4. Should we respect street art as we would artwork in a
gallery? Why or why not? - No it is because in gallery walk we sometimes
laugh. But some street arts are not post to laugh at it.

money on erasing it. 3. What should happen to street art that already

time to draw it. 4. Should we respect street art as we would artwork in a

gallery? Why or why not?

Starting Sentence : For some people graffiti is the only thing that they are
good at, and if they didn't have graffiti they would go into crime. In addition

Pro Fact No.1) Street artists risk their safety, freedom, and finances every
time they go out and create something illegally. Its important to take risks
in our lives every once in awhilewhether its something as grand as
quitting your job to pursue a passion or tricky as trying something new on
the menu. Taking risks pushes us out of our comfort zones to experience
and feel something new in our lives.
Pro Fact No.2) Many street artists create work with the belief that
freedom of speech and free art should be enjoyed by everyone. They create
out of pure enjoyment and give their art to the world selflessly. When you
put things out into the universe without the expectation of a return, it will
come back to you in one form or another.
