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, 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 collaged portrait poster. Using collage and rubbing techniques, kids of all ages can make their very own food-based artwork!
