Graffiti Artwork

Our Y6 pupils had great fun exploring the medium of graffiti based art. Initially the pupils thought that graffiti was just a term that meant scrawls on a wall. However - guided by Mrs Caccavale - they understood much more about the style, where it originated and what it can mean.

I didn't know that Graffiti art is a movement that can be traced back to New York in the 1970's. It was named after the spray-can vandalism common in most cities in the world but is most associated with the New York subway system.

Most people know that Graffiti  are writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or painted illicitly on a wall or other surface, often within public view. But were you aware that Graffiti have existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire?

We used pens, paint and spray cans to create our own images. But there is often a message in the artwork. Can you see what we were trying to say?
