As the saying goes, One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a good thing. The things that you enjoy are the things that make you who you are. They influence your style, your taste, and the type of art you create.
In fact, Austin Kleon encourages artists to dumpster dive. “‘Dumpster diving’ is one of the jobs of the artist— finding the treasure in other people’s trash, sifting through the debris of our culture, paying attention to the stuff that everyone else is ignoring, and taking inspiration from the stuff that people have tossed aside for whatever reasons.”
But in order to do this, we must be keenly aware of where to look. “All it takes to uncover hidden gems is a clear eye, an open mind, and a willingness to search for inspiration in places other people aren’t willing or able to go.”
"Make a Face"

Sometimes we need a jump start to thinking in a particular direction. This is not manditory as we know many of you have so many more ideas to try.
some examples: Masks, portraits, selfies, etc all with recycled materials
