Art to Start

We had a great time beginning our topic this term with our Art to Start!

We explored Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who was born in 1527 in Italy, who painted amazing pieces using fruit and vegetables. He is well known today for painting portraits of people made out of different types of fruits, vegetables, meat and fish.‚Äč

He would pick food that had a connection to whatever he was painting. For example, when creating a picture of autumn he used fruits and vegetables that grew in autumn. 

The children had great fun exploring his art work and having a go at making animal portraits using fruit and vegetables!
