From Rags to Riches
Sweet, Colleen
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v108 n2 p29-31 Oct 2008
In this article, the author presents the "Rags to Riches" design project she introduced to her students. She assigned each of her students one item from an array to thrift store goods which included old scarves, sweaters, jackets, and even evening gowns. The design problem was to imagine what a clothing tag might look like if the assigned item were being sold as new and not in a thrift store, but in an expensive clothing boutique.
