This takes a little time, but I found that it works for getting even most high school students to take work home. If it was a work on paper, I would get students working on something in class that did not take too much attention from me. Then I would go student to student with newsprint which I would lay their artwork on and with much ado carefully roll it up within the newsprint, tape it and write their name on the outside with marker. I did this to show my appreciation of their work and chatted approvingly about it to them as I did so. Most took their art with them when they left class.

I believe if we get themto take their work home in elementary and middleschool - high school will follow without any problems.I had all of the custodians on my side. Anytime theyfound a work of art in the trash, they brought it tomy room. Kids were NOT allowd to throw away art atschool.
