Arcimboldo

In Art, we have started to learn about a new artist called Guiseppe Arcimboldo. He was born in Milan, Italy in 1527 and he died in 1593, aged 63. We worked out that he was alive almost 500 years ago.

Arcimboldo was famous for creating portraits and images made from unusual things such as fruit and vegetables, flowers and animals. If you look carefully, you can see the different things that he had used to created the images.

We used some images of fruit and vegetables to create our own fruit and vegetables faces. Can you see which fruit and vegetables we have used for the different features?

How to continue the learning at home:

  • Can you make your own fruit and vegetable inspired face?
  • Go to the supermarket and ask your child what different kinds of fruit and vegetables they can see and name?
  • Try and taste some fruit and vegetables your child may not have tried before. What do they taste like? Can your child use adjectives to describe the appearance and taste of them?
  • Use the internet to have a look at some of the other art work Arcimboldo created.
  • Draw your own fruit and vegetable inspired portrait. Remember to use the correct colour for each object.

Arcimboldo inspired pizzas

We have been looking at the artist Arcimboldo in Y2. He is an artist who was alive over 400 years ago. He is famous for creating portraits of people but used fruit and vegetables for the different features of the face.

We have had lots of fun, using fruit and vegetables to create our own fruit and vegetable faces and we even made pizzas inspired by Arcimboldo.
