Please see below for some of the original drawings and then the final mural.
Together, with the mural artist, Chloe Harbour, we looked at some of the people in William Hogarth's work and talked about what they were doing in some of his pictures. It was interesting and fun to compare the differences and similarities in london life and human behaviour of today to 300 years ago when Hogarth painted his pictures. We found the big wigs with all their expensive jewels very funny and thought about what expensive things we would put in our wigs if big wigs were still fashionable today!
We chose topics and themes from Hogarth pictures. These were: owners and their pets school and learning, dressing up, going out and having fun, food and snacks, people in london, rich and poor and transport in london.
From these themes we then drew our own 2014 Hogarthian pictures of what we all do in London now.
