But what about art with a theme around food. This is where I got to a road block of sorts. What is the ethical considerations about using food in art?
I always feel a little uncomfortable using food in art - I feel like we are wasting food and I want to teach my class about limiting waste and being careful with the resources we have been blessed with. We live in a society that has an abundance of food - but many children around the world do not have as much as we do.
But when I see people cut up apples for the sole purpose of making prints with children I feel uneasy.
