Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for engaging teens and 'tweens with ecofriendly, low-cost art programs that are appropriate for the library or classroom.

Being "green" is a hot topic today, not only for businesses and adults interested in being socially responsible, but also for 'tweens, teens, and young adults. Today's young adults are keenly aware of environmental issues, locally and globally. They are also in need of art programs that provide a hands-on, creative outlet.

Teens Go Green!: Tips, Technique, Tools and Themes for YA Programming is an approachable reference book for librarians or high school teachers looking for low-cost, environmentally themed art projects and programs that teens will relate to and find fun. In Part 1, the author explains the needs for these programs, offers tips for teaching them, and suggests ways to expand teen involvement in the library. Part 2 provides dozens of practical, easy-to-follow art project ideas that demonstrate how simple teaching green teen art projects can be.

  • Each of the art projects are accompanied by a photograph of the finished product
  • The bibliography contains practical resources for librarians, such as teen books, DVD titles, websites, and blogs
  • An index makes it easy to locate art project ideas, programming, and other practical resources
