All Creation Waits by Gayle Boss
This year I'm deciding what to do. It would be so so so fun to do a Corita Kent-inspired tree, with ornaments that represent grocery store items (see Sister Corita: The Juiciest Tomato)!
I got this idea from yesterday's Corita Art Center email with pictures of a "juiciest tomato" ornament and a "Wonderbread" ornament. So I started looking around for ornaments of produce and food packaging. I found quite a few! I doubt I'll invest in so many new ornaments, but wouldn't it be fun??
prosciutto, olive oil, Italian salami, balsamic vinegar
I do have a blown glass eggplant ornament already, courtesy of my mom. She gave it to me when I was a little girl. She has very quirky taste! :-)
Here are all of my Art History: Sister Mary Corita Kent lesson plans.
Come to think of it, it would be really amazing to set up a Christmas tree like that as part of our Corita Kent display at the Donut Art Show on June 1st. Maybe I'll work on collecting ornaments over the next few months!
Another idea (less expensive) could be to get a bunch of fillable round clear ball ornaments and fill them with different foods. That wouldn't have the packaging aspect, but it would demonstrate a variety of colors and textures.
