Monsters, cats, armadillos, snowmen, aliens, sheep, lions, cars, trains and submarines and many more fantastic creations sprang from the creative minds of the ArtWorth participants and were realized in a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.
Once again, The Abundance Project partnered with the ArtWorth team to introduce a food element to this long running art camp. Participants were provided with approximately 20 different types of fruits and vegetables to be used as building materials for their creations.
Unlike at the dinner table, the kids were encouraged to play with their food, and to look at the different shapes, colours and textures of the ‘raw’ material.
To round out the activity, the residents of Mill Creek Manor were invited to judge the kids work. Each child was asked to give a brief description of their work and to comment on why they choose the materials they used.
Super cool! What a great idea. Healthy art. Love it.
A pleasant way to make vegetables seem edible to those “no vegetables for me” children.
