Today in class 9, we continued to explore the role of women during WWII and looked at different propaganda posters encouraging women to take up the jobs previously done by men. We found many common features of the posters and then tried to apply these to our own poster designs! We also developed our sketching skills and learnt how to sketch a face in proportion to show the glamorous WWII style women portrayed on these posters. The posters were all fantastic and varied from dig for victory to the WAAF (Womens Auxiliary Air Force).
Class 9 – which job did you portray in your propaganda poster? What features of the posters did you include in your own?
