Year 1 Art: Tropical Fruit Art inspired by Emma Dibben

Elmhurst School for Boys

6th October 2017 | Key Stage 1

This week in Topic, Year 1 have continued looking at North and South America. They learned about Christopher Columbus and how he arrived in the Caribbean. They looked at, tasted and smelled fruit like watermelons and lime and grated fresh nutmeg.

Year 1 then used the artist, Emma Dibben, as inspiration for their "Tropical Fruit" art lesson. Emma Dibben's fruit paintings are used by Waitrose for their food packaging because they make the food look so juicy and sweet. The boys used her technique to create some amazing, juicy paintings of their chosen tropical fruits, using natural vegetable dyes and ink pens.
