Key Stage 2 Art Movements Art Year 6

In this Graffiti Art KS2 planning pack, your class will find out all about the many varied forms of art in public spaces, and develop their own ideas for quick, colourful, eye-catching, humorous or satirical pieces of street art through sketching and annotating. Discuss how street art polarises opinion, when and where it is acceptable, and how it can improve or damage public spaces.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

Through the five included lessons, children will build up a collection of sketches and improve their designs for pieces, and have opportunities to draw, paint, cut and stencil during every lesson.

There are differentiated activities, so there's something suitable for all children in Year 5 and Year 6 as well as a whole host of printable resources designed to help children prepare and work independently.

#Lesson1IsGraffitiArt

Is graffiti art or vandalism? Firstly, take a look at how graffiti and graffiti-style art polarises opinion, and how it can either damage or improve public spaces. Following this, take a closer look at how lettering is often a central feature of street art designs, and challenge children to develop ideas for a text-based 'throwie' street art design of their own through sketching.

#Lesson2Canurbanartimprovepublicspaces

Can urban art improve public spaces? This is the question your class will consider as they look at the history of street art and how it gradually became more accepted. They'll go on to explore ways in which public spaces can be improved by 'authorised' street art. After that, it's up to you which of the two included activities you undertake with your class: either design works of urban art to improve a public space, or create small pieces of street art in public areas around school.

Following this, children may design satirical works of art based on a range of issues described in the included printable resources.
