What is the Delicious Delights Box?

From fantastic fruit to divine desserts, these delicious art projects look to artists old and new for inspiration and education. Food has always played a role in art: Stone Age cave painters used vegetable juice and animal fats as binding ingredients in their paints, and the Egyptians carved pictures of crops and bread on hieroglyphic tablets.

In this box experiment with ice cream sundae paintings inspired by Andy Warhol, look at Guiseppe Arcimboldo to create your very own fruit and veg faces, learn about still life with Cezanne, and create fast food and divine desserts sculptures with Wayne Thiebaud and Claes Oldenburg.

What's inside the box?

  • A booklet introducing the theme, with information about artists, art styles and techniques.
  • Clear instructions on seven art projects, appropriate for children of any age (4+ years), with tips to tailor each project for Little Ones.
  • Includes LoLA book recommendations for further reading.
  • Plenty of quality art materials for your child.
