Have you ever tried creating a portrait without actual paint? Or recreating a famous masterpiece with fruits and vegetables? Now is the perfect time to challenge yourself to new creative heights and push the envelope!

This week's ART NOW lesson is the Portrait Remix Challenge, inspired by Pablo Picasso's "Tete de femme". We put our special touch on this challenge and used black beans, green peppers, lemons, carrots, pasta, red onions and fresh basil to create a work of art!

Join the challenge! To participate:

  1. Find your favorite portrait or photo by a notable artist.
  2. Gather your supplies: house hold items, pasta, string, buttons, fruits and vegetables, objects, clothing etc.
  3. Arrange the items on a blank piece of paper or a clean background to replicate your image of choice.
  4. Be sure to consider the color, shapes, and sizes of the objects to get them as close to scale as possible.
  5. Think outside the box and let your imagination run wild.
  6. Once your items have been fully arranged, take a picture and share your work with us! Tag us @ltycarts on Facebook and Instagram!
