Our Art Room
I thought I'd share some photos of how the art room is set up. The things I consider the most when setting up each year are:
Accessibility: Can everyone reach what they need to get?
Organization: Does everyone know where to get and put back the supplies? Does everyone know where their art should go when cleaning up?
Movement: How does everyone fit at the table? (especially when they are working on large pieces of paper) On the rug? Can everyone see the board? Is there a place for classes to line up?
Display: Where should art be hung? Year-round displays (like the elements of art chart) should be big and hung securely. Where are larger works like classroom murals going to go while they are being worked on? Are there spaces to hang work for classroom gallery walks?
Paper is easily accessible and labeled.
