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 environment 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 100 practical, easy-to-follow art project ideas that demonstrate how simple teaching green teen art projects can be.

This practical book presents 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.

Nationwide, school budget cuts have brought an end to art programs. At the same time, the need for quality after-school programs is continuing to grow. These are just two of the reasons librarians serving teens in public library and school settings are now asked to fill the role of art teacher and provide services beyond reading and research.
