Arcimboldo Collages

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.

Go to this website to check out more paintings done by Arcimboldo.

Here what you need for the project:

  • Old Magazines
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • Piece of Construction Paper
  • Lots of Imagination!

Your kids or students will have lots of fun making unusual portraits!
