In Art, Year 4 have been studying the art of graffiti. The children have looked at graffiti through the ages, with links dating as far back as the Egyptian period! We have discussed how graffiti has changed over time, and the artists which have influenced and shaped the world of graffiti. Thought provoking lessons, have led to discussions as to whether graffiti is Art or an act of vandalism. Children have also thought about the impact of graffiti on the society that we live in today, in particular, the effect of graffiti on the children's local community.
The children had a fantastic morning creating their own graffiti art, when we had our very own graffiti artist in school!
