Blitz Artwork

November 2021

This week, Year 6 have been working to create art which shows the skyline of London before, during or after the Blitz. We learned about the German bombing offensive against Britain in 1940 and 1941 then looked at images of the destruction and devastation caused by the shells. At first, we washed our white paper with watercolours in hues that we had decided would be accurate, then we decided upon a black silhouette for our skyline and either cut or ripped it to fit over our sky. It looks really effective, we think!
