Playing with Food


Observe this image closely. What do you see? What more can you find? What is your interpretation of what you are seeing?


Observe again. What new things do you see? How does this change your previous thoughts? What new interpretation can you make?


Now what do you see? What questions or wonders arise from seeing the full image?

Now it is time for you to make your own work of art with food. Gather some fruits and vegetables you would like to eat as a snack or breakfast with your family. Create a portrait of one of your family members using the fruits and vegetables you choose. There is no right or wrong way of doing this activity. HAVE FUN!
