7 Blue have been learning about the famous graffiti artist Banksy, who is one of Britain’s most influential modern day artists.

We looked at lots of examples of Banksy’s work and the children tried to work out the hidden meaning behind his work.

We decided to create our own graffiti art in the style of Banksy linked to our LMTW theme ‘Cry Freedom’.

The children began by creating lots of words and images linked to slavery in their sketch books.  Once they decided which image they wanted to use they then made a stencil on card which they used to create their final piece before adding their chosen word or phrase onto their graffiti art.
