I also use a local Framery to add to my art supplies. Most of my projects
have at least some throwaway matt board or Foam Core in them. We also get
throwaway frames and mis-made mats for the student's work.
Look around. Frame shops produce alot of trash. Most of it good for our
lessons. I also get left over posters from a local mall. By the thousands!
The backs are white and good for alot of things.
Good luck
