FOOD ON CANVAS is an ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnership in the field of School Education involving seven schools from European countries and Turkey:
Vocational High School for Tourism and Catering, Bulgaria (Project Coordinator)
IPSSAR Filippo Buscemi, Italy
Srednja Skola Dalj, Croatia
EST Lifelong Learning Centre, Poland
Our main aim is to promote teaching Culinary Arts in the Visual Arts historical and cultural context, involving our students into activities related to arts and food preparation/consumption. The FOOD ON CANVAS platform provides open access to all developed materials which we see as valuable and useful educational resources. The platform also records the progress of work through sharing insights into our meetings and other project related events.
In the THEMATIC CATEGORIES relating to various periods of art history from prehistoric to modern art we present exemplary paintings depicting food which open a field of explorations of the most typical dishes and ingredients of the period. Each post closes with a recipe(s) to encourage practical learning of how visual and culinary arts interconnect.
RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS feature lesson plan and tutorials to promote the use of the platform resources in school education, especially in culinary arts classes which need to give a broader cultural context to the vocational training. There is no predefined format to the materials. We rather encourage innovative and creative contributions from teachers reflecting their own ideas and approaches.
Similarly the STUDENTS’ PRESENTATIONS include individual and teamwork contributions on the project related themes. They are varied in terms of the content and the way of presentation, still all valuable as documenting an authentic engagement in the project by the young learners.
Finally, the EVENTS will give you an overview of the project in action, with small photo galleries depicting the people behind the scenes.
