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?

Andy Goldsworthy

Artist, Andy Goldsworthy, creates environmental art sculptures from objects he finds in nature, like leaves, rocks, and snow.  The textures, colors, and shapes of his objects are important for his sculptures. Can you determine which natural materials he used for these sculptures? (Studio Habit of Mind- Stretch and Explore)

Andy Goldsworthy creates his environmental art and then leaves it outside.  What do you think happens when he leaves it outside? Why do you think he does that?

Does Andy always succeed with his sculptures? What do you think he does when things don’t go the way he planned? (Studio Habit of Mind- Engage and Persist, Reflect)

Here are some student-created environmental sculptures.

TAB- Update: First Two Weeks

Life is good in the art room! Students are learning about our new centers and we’ve opened up three out of eight so far: drawing, inspiration, and collage. We’ll be opening up a new one each week.

*New this year:  Each student has a portfolio to keep his/her artwork in. Students will choose which artworks will be displayed at school and which artworks to bring home.
