## Art – Sculptures

Today we have been learning about the Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who used fruits, vegetables, animals, books, and other objects to resemble human portraits.

Here’s an interactive activity to create your own style art. Drag the fruit and vegetables to create an Arcimboldo-style face. Stretch objects by holding down the shift key while dragging. Feed unwanted objects to the hungry mouth which acts like a bin!
