  3. We looked at Andy Warhol. Looked at his coloured faces of famous people. Then did our own versions of WWII leaders. In the past also done same with Prime Ministers from 1930's onward. Looked great.

    I would look at the parts of the topic you will be covering and decide. Our topic is the Romans and I am looking at the Roman army as part of that to keep my boys interested. Knowing this, they will be making shields. We are looking at lifestyle so they will be making mosaics and cooking Roman bread and cakes.
    Hope this will kickstart some ideas.

    1930 Clarice Cliff
    1940 Sky scapes in pastels of the Blitz
    1950 Andy Wahol
    1960 More pop art
    1970 Flower power (or DT making some flares from old trousers by sewing in triangles)
    1980 Damien Hurst?
    1990 Tracy Emin?

    Make sure you do a mix of children's creativity as well as 'in the style of' type art.
