Year 3 Graffiti ArtGraffiti Art
Year 3 created ‘graffiti art’ and shared it as part of their class assembly. They researched the history of graffiti and had a debate about whether it should be classed as a form of art or just a type of vandalism. The children were very good at looking at the argument from both sides, but now it is time for you to decide what you think!
