Easy DIY Kids Crafts: Picasso Inspired Food Art

Pablo Picasso, Portrait of Dora Maar, 1937
The Art Toast Project by Ida Frosk.

Another Food Art project for my K-2 After School Enrichment students was inspired by Ida Frosk’s The Art Toast Project and her interpretation of Picasso’s cubism. I love how the kids used the ingredients to make their own cubist portraits of a woman.

Ingredients:
  • bread
  • butter or cream cheese
  • cheese slices
  • raisins
  • yellow pepper
  • roasted red pepper
  • lettuce or parsley
  • black licorice string
Directions:
  1. Discuss Picasso and cubism.
  2. Using butter and/or cream cheese as “glue,” create a cubist portrait.
  3. Eat and enjoy!
