Art + Food

What is your favorite meal? Why? Artists have been inspired by their food since the very beginning of art. Why do you think artists are interested in making art showing food?

Here are examples of how artists have shown food throughout history. What do you observe in these artworks?

We are taking inspiration from these artists and their artworks. You will make an artwork that shows your favorite meal or food to share with the people in your house. How will you create your meal or food? What art materials will you use? What will your favorite meal or food tell about you?

WCMS NTI Art Show

Students learned about master artists and were asked to create art inspired by those artworks. Students created art with materials they have available, which is an excellent way to show they’re engaging and persisting. Congratulations to our artists on creating through challenges! Thank you, Mrs. Joyner, for collaborating with me to create this video.

Art Career: Imagineering

Last week’s Studio Habit of Mind was Understanding Art Worlds: I can learn about art careers and how artists work with other artists. Today’s link is about an art career called Imagineering. Yes, that’s a real job title and it combines many fields, like math, science, engineering, and art.

Below is a link for Khan Academy’s “Imagineering in a Box” course, which goes through 3 design stages: 1) Build your own world 2) Build your own attractions 3) Build your own character. This is a free course that provides a lot of information and creative opportunities.
