About Lots of Lovely Art Delicious Delights
Create your very own tea party with colourful cardboard cakes, or deliver a fast-food take-away with a Plaster of Paris burger! This box is filled with creative ideas that will give you a taste of how food is used in art, from printing with apples to still life paintings and collaged fruit faces.
From fantastic fruit to divine desserts, these delicious art projects look to artists old and new for inspiration and education. Food has always played a role in art: Stone Age cave painters used vegetable juice and animal fats as binding ingredients in their paints, and the Egyptians carved pictures of crops and bread on hieroglyphic tablets.
In this box experiment with ice cream sundae paintings inspired by Andy Warhol, look at Guiseppe Arcimboldo to create your very own fruit and veg faces, learn about still life with Cezanne, and create fast food and divine desserts sculptures with Wayne Thiebaud and Claes Oldenburg.
