With the coronavirus pandemic calling for children to stay and home for school, Amy Herrmann and her children Sovereign, 8, Pippen, 6, and Finn, 3, decided to expand the learning from their normal school work to include art.
Herrmann, who is a photographer and holds an arts degree, wanted her children to learn about recycling and collages so they would collect litter during their daily walks to make collages of musicians.
The kids are fans of “the hair toss lady,” as they call her and decided to do a collage of Lizzo using buttons, cookie cutters, electrical cords, and broken car reflectors.
The portrait was seen by the owner of a sustainable cafe on a Facebook group and asked Herrmann if she would display it in her cafe. The cafe owner says the Lizzo portrait is a reminder of our environmental impact.
