Activity: Creative Veggie Walk

Take a piece of fruit or a vegetable on a trip out with you and your family. Document your trip with photos and share with us. Inspired by our exhibiting artist, Erika Verzutti.


Have you ever taken the class bear home and taken photos of its time with you? Well, we are inspired by Erika Verzutti for this activity, she has a number of fruit and vegetables she uses in her art: I have noticed pineapples, oranges, lychees and cauliflower to name a few.

Find a piece of fruit or a vegetable you may have at home. I have drawn eyes on mine with a marker pen, but you could also draw and cut out part of an envelope or piece of scrap paper and stick on eyes that way.

I took mine to a play park with a friend. We took it on the slide, swing, and had a go on the skateboard, then it was worn out so home to bed.

What might you do on your creative veggie walk?

Tips at home:

If it is a fruit or vegetable you want to eat later make sure you choose one with a skin that you will peel incase it gets dirty, or give it a wash once back home.

You can dress up your fruit or veg in your clothes or in dolls clothes if you have any.

You could also try it with more than one fruit or vegetable.

We would love to see pictures of your day out at #NCmaking

Share Your Feedback, complete our Family Survey

Working digitally, means we miss all those lovely conversations we would usually have with you, sharing ideas, listening, and seeing how you respond to our workshops. It is difficult to get feedback when we don't see you and this would really help.

The survey takes about 10 mins or less to complete and it will really help our team to understand more about what you thought ready for when we are back together at Nottingham Contemporary. You can fill out our survey by clicking here.

We'd love to hear what you think.
