Class Description: Giuseppe Arcimboldo was a sixteenth century Italian painter who made imaginative portraits from combining fruits, vegetables, sea creatures and more. After looking at examples of his work, we’ll explore making one or two sculpture as a class from everyday groups of objects such as sewing items – buttons, zippers, spools of thread etc., or old shoes, toys, or sea shells for example. Then we’ll make a painting from them.
