This is one of the "Garbage Collages" my students did. We saved our packaging from our lunches and reused it in our collages. You would not believe how much trash twenty people can make in three days just saving lunch stuff! There are many artists who reuse materials to make their works of art. The artist we looked at for this lesson was Sandhi Schimmel-Gold. She is a contemporary artist and she does really wonderful portraits reusing magazines. I noticed when I got done this week that I am much more reluctant to throw something out that could maybe be made into something else. Waste not, want not!
