opening quoteI think graffiti is alright in the right circumstances, but if you're in a public place then you shouldn't do it!closing quote

opening quoteGraffiti makes more work for the cleaners on the streets. It is disgusting. They should put up cameras, so they can be told off. Graffiti spoils the environment.closing quote
Tristan, 9, Hertford

opening quoteI don't like graffiti. If people want to draw then they should do it on paper. How would they like it if they'd spent hours repainting a wall and the next day some kids came and drew all over it? If they want to graffiti something, then they should graffiti their own property, not someone else's!closing quote

opening quoteI think graffiti is just another form of art. When I walk past any, I look to see if there is anything new.closing quote
Gemma, 14, Taunton

opening quoteI think that if you gave the artists somewhere to practice their art, then everyone would be happier. It works where I live!closing quote
Calista, 15, Kent

opening quoteArt is not something that you should be arrested for. Most young people who graffiti are really good artists, so people should encourage them not arrest them.closing quote
Rachel, 13, Glasgow

opening quoteGraffiti is fine as long as you do it where you're allowed, otherwise it's just vandalism (even if it does express your feelings).closing quote
