This is the only "green guide" devoted exclusively to artists who want to use non-toxic materials, learn safe studio practices, and create eco-conscious art. Karen Michel inspires artists to make better choices within their work and studios — and then shows them how.
Green Guide for Artists is divided into four sections. The first section offers safe and green practices for the workspace. The second section contains recipes for Do-it-Yourself art supplies such as non-toxic paints and adhesives, and handmade paper made from recycled paper.
The third section of the book shares a fresh look at using recycled materials through creative step-by-step projects and a gallery section. The final section contains a resource guide for eco-friendly materials and supplies, including websites and forum links.
Karen Michel is a mixed media artist. She lives in New York, where she runs a 10-year-old non-profit art center for children, the Creative Art Space for Kids Foundation, with her artist husband Carlo Thertus. Along with sharing her love for the arts with children, she also teaches adult workshops to beginning and established artists. Her books, paintings, and collages have been exhibited internationally and published in numerous books and magazines.
