This workshop engages all members of the BU community in thinking more deeply about the food they eat and its connection to culture, environment and marketplaces. How do you see your food? Do you think about its origins in the soil or personal memories it evokes? How can drawing our food make us more conscious of what we eat and what it means to us? Work with culinary illustrator to learn some basic techniques for drawing food while engaging in discussion with faculty from Nutrition, Gastronomy, and Arts Education about connections between art, health, culture, and perception. No art-making experience required. Food will be provided both as models and for eating.
