It seems like everybody's "going green" these days. People do what they can to save the environment. Their cars are greener, their buildings are greener, even their clothes are greener. But what about going "brown"? It's cheap, it's readily available, and it has endless uses--especially in art. It's cardboard. The author describes a project that is based on a common design multiplication assignment that is used to introduce beginning art students to the elements and principles of art. The goal was to have students gain confidence in their ability to create good two-dimensional design using simple tools. (Contains 1 online resource.)
