And teach them to spell.
It's graffiti (singular: graffito;
from the Italian word graffiato ("scratched"). "Graffiti" is applied in art history to works of art produced by scratching a design into a surface. A related term is "graffito," which involves scratching through one layer of pigment to reveal another beneath it. This technique was primarily used by potters who would glaze their wares and then scratch a design into it. In ancient times graffiti was carved on walls with a sharp object, although sometimes chalk or coal were used. The Greek infinitive γράφειν — graphein — meaning "to write," is from the same root.
The plural is used as a mass noun) is the name for images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property.
