The ritual of gathering around food has been depicted by artists for centuries. Students will explore the relationship between art and food, from meticulous silver place settings, to carefully arranged still life paintings, to full scale reconstructed dining rooms. Then back in the studio, sculpt your own papier-mâché culinary delights, print patterns for unique table settings, and set up your own food-inspired still life to paint from!

Please provide a nut-free lunch, snacks, utensils, water bottle, extra masks, smock and picnic blanket.
