Giuseppe Arcimboldo inspires a class to make their own food face art!

Artsology's presentation on Guiseppe Arcimboldo and our subsequent Arcimboldo Food Face inspired a group of students in Ottawa, Canada, to create their own "portraits" using fruits and vegetables. The class teacher contacted Artsology about their project, and we are happy to share their creativity with you here!
