Despite the pandemic, we are very THANKFUL for the family or friends that we are able to connect with either in their homes or by a phone call. We also want to take a moment to be thankful for the things that we do have this fall season: A warm bed to sleep in, a warm meal on the table and art supplies in our cabinets or strewn across the table!
What do Matisse, Eric Carle, Claes Oldenburg and Wayne Thiebaud have in common?
Answer: Food Art!
An Art Adventures blast from the past for Turkeyday fun: PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD! Create food art, inspired by Thiebaud and Matisse and remembering Oldenburg from MoMA’s 2013 exhibition. (We LOVED placing our works on the Thanksgiving table to try to fool the family!)
“Matisselived during France’s Belle Époque. Café culture was at its height, and cafés were where artists came together to exchange stories, discuss new artistic styles, and eat good food*. What a way to live, discuss and create together! We can do the same today, by making pastries and creating food art out of play dough or cutting newspaper, magazines and colorful plastic bags. Eric Carleand Matisseliked to make their own painted patterned papers (or markers)… THEN cut them up to collage onto cardboard with a glue stick! Make patterns or paint from cool colors: greens, blues and purples, because Green Beans are so fun to cut! (and eat.)
Check out our dinner table collages and dessert sculptures from our Art Adventure Classes:
MoMA’s exhibition ofClaes Oldenburg: The Street and The Storewas displayed in August of 2013. This was one of our favorite tours to lead! Oldenburg is known for his depictions of everyday objects, here as sculptures. The Streetis comprised of objects made from cardboard, burlap and newspaper (Playdough/Model Magic) and The Store is made up of brightlypainted sculptures and reliefs.
How would you build your own food sculpture? Will your turkey be blue or purple? What would you use?
