Sample Lesson Description: Student / Classroom Residencies
Creative Reuse Challenge Exploring Creative Reuse artists and their creations More Art, Less Trash! Learning about fine art made of trash legitimizes using waste as a source for art materials which may help create less waste. Answering the question “How can this material be used to create art?” helps develop creativity and critical thinking skills. Practicing with reused materials offers the chance for students to learn art skills they can use for pleasure or profit in the rest of their lives.
