So I had this great dream that I was taking a gift wrapping class and the teacher was my old Art teacher from high school. The first assignment was to wrap a gift using only supplies purchase at Walgreen’s which I felt was a great way to push the students to be creative and think on their feet.
Our teacher then took the class to a Walgreen’s and had everyone buy supplies while she stood watch near the registers. I remember one of the classmates buying a can of Campbell’s ravioli or some such thing. He bought it because the ravioli was filled with beets and he was going to use that to color something.
I remember buying graphing paper, black shoe polish and poster board. My idea was to cut out a stencil from the poster board then use the shoe polish to stain the design onto the graphing paper. It was around this time that I woke up. I really wish I could have seen the project done.
