This week the primary children took a field trip to Froberg’s Farm to pick strawberries. I thought it would be a great idea to create a piece of art work using fruit and vegetables. Students were provided with cut-up pieces of fruit and vegetables such as celery, mushrooms, strawberries, oranges and peppers, paint, brushes and paper. They were instructed to paint the flat part of the vegetable and press it on to paper creating flower shapes. Once the paint was dry the prints were cut out to create a bouquet of flowers. Lastly, students cut out a symmetrical shaped vase to hold their flowers. I love the organic shapes created by these fruit and vegetable prints.
