This morning I raided my friend’s vegetable garden for the late autumn and early winter crops and arrived at art club with beautiful curly kale, red chard, beetroots, squash and various other freshly gathered vegetables and fruit.
Our theme for this half term is to create an imaginary multimedia feast installation that celebrates our locally grown vegetables. This will be exhibited to parents at the end of the last art club. The children have lots of ideas so hopefully we will be able to explore them all.
This week we started out sketching the vegetables then I demonstrated some techniques to paint on fabric and we covered a huge tablecloth with drawings. Next the children started thinking about imaginary recipes using the vegetables and drew up recipe cards to illustrate their ideas. We’ll be working on these some more but meanwhile here are the photos.
