Picture this: your ultimate dinner and dessert

If you like art, and you also like food, we have the perfect activity for you. Scott, an instructor at Pratt Fine Arts Center, a community arts center in Seattle that works with Amazon, shows you how to prepare a feast for the eyes with a super fun project that artists at any skill level can do—all you need is an appetite for creativity.

In this video, Scott demonstrates how to use basic drawing and collage techniques to create a salad, a pizza, and an ice cream sundae. Sound good? We thought so, too. In case you were wondering, a collage is a piece of art that uses different materials together, such as paper cutouts, stickers, and even cloth or wood. In this case, Scott uses a combination of glued paper cutouts, stickers, and tape placed on top of drawings he creates with a combination of markers, pencils, crayons, and chalk.

What toppings do you like to put on pizza? How about flavors for ice cream sundaes? Or is there something totally different that you like to eat? The best part about a draw-and-collage dinner is that it can be made up of absolutely anything you want. Dig in!
