About This Class

Play with your food! In this 40-minute class, artist and photographer Julie Lee (julieskitchen) visits the farmers market to find the freshest, most colorful ingredients for not only dinner, but also a beautiful food collage. Follow along as she prepares her ingredients and arranges them into a collaged work of art. Julie photographs her work, edits the photo, and shares the final image in a fun step-by-step, on-location class capturing a real experience of food, photography, and art. This class is perfect for any and all foodies, artists, and photo aficionados looking for a unique way to make an image.

pure creative fun, then you can eat it! well done! (not a pun)
This was a basic, natural light set up/collage approach. Lots of small tidbits of information throughout. Easily watched at 1.5 x. Enjoy the beauty of all her fresh food!
I enjoyed this class very much. Julie is organized, inspiring, and provides good tips throughout her work!

Founder, Julie's Kitchen

Julie loves delicious things. She loves beautiful things. She loves to create and to learn.

Her food collages on Instagram started out as a way to showcase seasonal and local offerings from neighborhood farmers markets. It’s evolved into an ongoing project in the study of plant design, exploration of color theory, and pure, unadulterated food-love. Let’s be real–Julie like to play with my food. 

Most of the the goods are from the Saturday Santa Monica Farmer's Market. Oftentimes Julie's urban garden. Sometimes a neighborhood forage. Never a store.

Photos are shot with a Canon 6D or iPhone 5 in Julie's teeny kitchen. It’s not a fancy set-up, but luckily, it catches quite a bit of natural light.
