global-give-green, an exercise in repurposed art [day 139]

These small pieces of art are made on painted MDF panels that were about to be thrown in the trash.  The words are cut out of magazines, the leftover magazine skeletons went to the recycling bin.  Most of the paint is leftovers from other art projects.  Most of the painting embellishments and lines were painted with pizza boxes leftover from lunch.  The photos are just snapshots, I need to take some good photos of them.  😉

One thing I thought of when I was working on these, is that I can’t buy art supplies.  I’m low on many paint colors and without this challenge, I would just go and buy.  I’m looking on craigslist for supplies, and might hit eBay too, but for now I’m just careful to use what I have and not worry about running out.

What kids of art can you make by repurposing things you already have? Here’s a few more of these panels painted by the kids in my neighborhood.  (artists:  Lauren C., Grace T., Joe W., & Landry M.)

    Jody-we have some old interior house paint that we aren’t going to use. I don’t know if you can use it or not but you are welcome to have it! I’m not creative enough to know what to do with it. Keep making cool art!
