Giuseppe Arcimboldo visited the 1st and 2nd Graders

Giuseppe Arcimboldo was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books. We did a study of him and created our own self portraits using his techniques!

 For this project children cut  old magazines to create an imaginary face. They picked a category of objects to work with such as: fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, or books.

The results were beautiful and the children loved creating their self portraits!
