This lesson explores how children's ideas and opinions can be harnessed to create meaningful pieces of art in the form of banners. Within the lesson, children are encouraged to explore the work of famous artists, use sketch books to formulate their ideas and play around with slogans and wording to ultimately create a banner they can use to 'shout' about their beliefs.
