I wanted to share with you some of the highlights from my annual student art show at my school. This was a fun and easy art project to do. This is perfect for students 5th – 8th grade. My students are 7th and 8th grade and they absolutely loved it. This is also great if you are just looking for a simple summer activity that requires very little supplies.
Here are some of the Arcimboldo collages that my students created.
They are quite funny and make for a good laugh.
If you are not familiar with Giuseppe Arcimbolodo’s work. You should check it out. He was a Renaissance artist known for his portraits using flowers, fish, vegetables, books, and nature. He would create unique and fascinating portraits using these particular objects. Here are just a few examples.

Here what you need for the project:
