Year 2: Art and Design

The Great Fire of London

Year 2 drew and coloured the front cover for their topic book for the Great Fire of London today. Children looked at historical paintings as a reference and then focused on scale, foreground, middleground and background to try and create a sense of depth to their picture. Children tried to use natural colours to reflect the architecture of the time and used light from the fire to create a sense of atmosphere with silhouettes.
