Eat Your Fruit and Veggies - 2nd Grade Installation

In collaboration with Health & Wellness, 2nd graders used images of fruit and vegetables in art class to create marker drawings on tracing paper. The fruit and veggie drawings are installed in the breezeway to remind everyone to make good choices in the cafeteria!

I first showed my 2nd graders some contemporary artists who use many types of food to create sculptures. Click the links below to see these artists' exciting work!

We used Fibracolor markers in addition to Crayola markers. The Fibracolor markers are wonderful for this type of project since they offer an excellent range of tints and shades.
