It is the artists of the world, the feelers and the thinkers who will ultimately save us; who can articulate, educate, defy, insist, sing, and shout big dreams.
A couple of years ago the girls and I made a giant stuffed paper pop art apple and ever since then we have toyed with the idea of making another piece of pop art fruit. If you like the look of this project but don’t have the time or space to devote to a big stuffed piece of fruit consider making a smaller version or check out our 2-D Pop Art Sunset project.
Large scale, multi-process, collaborative projects are not a part of our everyday but when we get the chance to do one we go all in. This round of pop art fruit-making included a color-wall scavenger hunt, photo shoot, and video trailer thanks to my talented 13 year old! Whoever said the teenage years were hard failed to mention that they are also wonderful and rewarding.
