This lesson shows how the movements of favourite footballers, combined with pop art, can inspire an eye-catching art project.
Exploring the work and techniques of a well-known pop artist furthers the children’s understanding of this artistic movement and enables them to turn their sporting enthusiasm into a high-quality piece of art.
