Early conceptual painting assignment

In this case I was inspired by a manifesto from the Museum of Everyday Life, called a "Meditation on the Toothbrush", written by Claire Dolan.

This was read as a class and the students were instructed to brainstorm ideas and turn in a sheet of 6-8 thumbnails. Not many of the 28 works were successful- I think it was too early in the semester to give the students so much freedom, ...but they were aching for it, and I guess that is what I was responding to.
I did give them parameters- like they had to use collage, and a spot of color but remain predominantly black and white.
 We will have a critique tomorrow. I have to judge them purely by design success.
