How lucky we are that inspiration can come from everywhere.
This lesson idea was sparked by a personal experience that I had with a very special fortune cookie from nearly 20 years ago. I shared the story with my students and let each of them choose six fortune cookies from a giant bagO’cookies… and then waited to see what showed up. Their challenge was to use their cookies as inspiration for a sketchbook page.
I think that a fortune cookie is a pretty good metaphor for developing an idea: Choose it. Open it up. Think about it. Munch on it. Take it in. Digest. mmm
And as for my students, I am reminded again and again…
Everyone agrees that you are the best.
