In this unique workshop participants will learn how to use piped icing as an art medium, drawing colourful and
expressive lines of sugar. As part of the workshop, participants will gain a better understanding of how
everyday materials carry meaning and symbolism as well as learning about different ephemeral art practices.
Artistic techniques explored include colour blending, texture, linework and composition. Students will make
individual pieces (possibly a piped mandala design or sugar graffiti tags). It is also possible to combine
individual artworks into a composite group artwork.
Materials: Cardboard, plastic wrap, masking tape, paper. The Artist will provide already mixed icing, piping
bags, confectionery tips and food grade colouring.
Grade Levels: Elementary Cycle 2, 3, Secondary Grades 7-11
