Turning Food into Art

Turning Food into Art

A targeted visual arts offering with students drawing inspiration from Tastes like Sunshine and Our Collection: Harvest to Hearth followed by a hands-on still life watercolour activity.

Food and the domestic environment have long been a source of inspiration for local artists from still life to detailed interior scenes. Our Collection: Harvest to Hearth is a selection of artworks from the Museum of Brisbane Collection that celebrate the domestic origins of Brisbane’s food culture. The featured artists have been inspired by the production of food and its full lifecycle including growing, harvesting, preparing and cooking. Artists on show include William Robinson, Donna Marcus and Marian Drew.

Following an inspiring exhibition tour, students will be guided in a watercolour workshop using local seasonal produce as their inspiration, turning food into art!
