Following on from Year One exploring and sketching a wide range of fruit and vegetables, the children continued to explore the work of Acrimboldo but this time through creating a portrait using fresh produce. Throughout the whole process the children had to really apply their imaginations, especially when trying to create a range of facial features and expressions.  The children also had the opportunity to make comparisons between the different practices and disciplines that Acrimboldo once used as well as making links to their very own “ Plant Portrait” masterpieces. I must admit though, the best part was eating them — yummy!
