As art teachers, it is in their nature to collect everything they get their hands on. They teach their students how to find beauty in the resources they have. Students can improve their portfolios by using innovative materials that allow them to tell a story that is also beneficial to the planet. Most art teachers are experienced in scavenging, but many are not aware of the scope of the resources available to them in the community. In this article, the author offers suggestions for art teachers on how to begin this process by creating a master "recycle book" for the school or community of art teachers. With any assignment where students are asked to incorporate nontraditional materials, it is important for art teachers to give guidelines. The author presents "green" artists resources and describes how to introduce students to the idea of using recycled goods.
