Lee Gainer Inspired Recycled Art

Each year I am looking for a recycled art lesson for my 5th and 6th grade students. I came across this artist and just had to try it. Students first thought of a title or theme to help guide their color choices and then we began cleaning out the closet. Within the art work you can find fabric, burlap, felt, paper, plastic, rope, yarn etc. These are wonderful in person and the textures are very beautiful! Would definitely do this one again!


  1. These are great. Who was the artist who originally inspired them?

  2. Uhhh - never mind - it helps if I read the title of your post I guess! Sorry!
