Instructor: Alanna Berman
Wednesday–Friday July 29–31
2:00–3:00 p.m.

The famous gourmet Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once said, “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are.” Food is not only for survival: it is part of our identity! It can be an expression of likes and dislikes. It can be a reminder of a happy memory, beloved family tradition or celebration. It can be tied to what country your family came from, where you live now or a place that you visited. In this camp, you will explore how food has meaning for you. You will create a self-portrait inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo and a food truck with miniature clay foods.
