Investigate the work of artist Keith Haring and create your own vibrant responses with Abby King’s KS2 pop art lesson plan...
It’s tempting to think that using a national or international football tournament to engage children’s learning has to involve copious amounts of PE. However, making links between football and other subject areas can be a powerful motivator for children whose main interest is sports.
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. It will also enable them to turn their sporting enthusiasm into a high-quality piece of art.
