Recycled Artwork Can Include Numerous Types Of Materials

If you take any time to research recycled artwork you will find there are thousands of different types of materials being used today. It is simply up to the artist and the imagination. I have seen wonderful recycled art projects made of everything from worthless trash to priceless natural resources. There are a multitude of ideas and one of the best things is you can create this type of artwork for next to nothing.

After reviewing a tremendous amount of art made from recycled materials I realized they fall into a few different categories. There is recycled art that primarily incorporates organic and natural materials. For example things of this nature may include; paper, cloth, fibers, grasses, plants and metals. Another style may prefer only items that have already been used or thrown out. Of course recycled artwork can be a combination of both or something else completely.

In my own personal experience I usually try to use whatever I am lucky enough to have laying around my art room. Once I have decided on the theme for my project I make a few quick sketches and list of supplies I will need. Sometimes the initial drawings and items needed will be added to or revised. I often try several different variations on my subject matter. This helps me eliminate what does not work while giving me new ideas at the same time. For the most part I like using natural materials and things I already have or find along the way while working on a recycled art piece.

There are times when I have had to buy paint or other supplies in order to complete an art project. I feel it is important to use as many green products as possible. I spent a few hours trying to find some eco friendly art surprised. To tell you the truth I was quite surprised to find a few companies who take pride in promoting their earth friendly products. This being said, I no longer feel guilty if I have to use paint or solutions from time to time. I have found greener alternatives and encourage others to do the same. Finding online art supplies that contain less toxins makes me very happy. Now we can be free to create unique and fabulous art with causing more damage to the earth. It just goes to show that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. You can find some of the most beautiful art in the world and it is literally made out of garbage.
