Create an Upcycled Art Drawing

Upcycling is the process of taking something old and turning it into something new and useful. You can apply this concept to your drawing by using materials that would otherwise be thrown away.

For example, you can use an old jar lid as a canvas or draw on an old t-shirt. This is a great way to get creative and reduce waste at the same time.

Or, use old fabric remnants to create a river scene – as on this pillow here.
