Colorful Conservation
Skophammer, Karen
Arts & Activities, v149 n3 p38, 50 Apr 2011
Some people only think about conservation on Earth Day. Being in the "art business" however, this author is always conscious of the many products she thinks get wasted when they could be reused, recycled, and restored--especially in a school building and art room. In this article, she describes an art lesson that allows students to paint conservation messages on garbage cans to remind everyone to help save the Earth. After completing this project, the students were thrilled to see their garbage cans being used in the hallways and in classrooms. What was even better was the fact that the entire school gets to be reminded to be Earth friendly and conserve while viewing their art--and not only on Earth Day, but every day of the year.
