MoB Kids: Fruity Faces Collage

Brisbane-based artist Elizabeth Willing uses food as the primary inspiration for her artworks. You can see more of her work here, including the artwork made while she was Artist in Residence at Museum of Brisbane.

This activity invites kids to explore food as a mark-making tool in the construction of a portrait poster. Using collage and rubbing techniques, kids of all ages can make their very own food-based artwork!


  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Colouring pencils/crayons
  • A4 paper for printing (coloured or white)
  • A3 size paper/card to display work
  • A4 plain white paper
  • Textured biscuits (Elizabeth used Malt O’ Milks for this work)

*We recommend using a large table with a cover, so that crumbs, scrap paper and glue can be easily cleaned up at the end of the activity.
