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?
Students have worked hard to complete their stunning artworks for Art to Remember.

Fourth and fifth grade students learned about Lexington artist, Lennon Michalski. They learned he layers acrylic paints to create stunning color mixtures. Fifth graders could choose to use canvas and fourth could use paper. We started our first layers of acrylic paint. More to come later!
