More ideas-
Our school system carpenters build us art screens using 2x 1 wood strips
and hardware cloth screen. Artwork may be prepared by attaching two
pieces of hole punched tagboard in the upper corners, then hanging the
work with extended paperclips. Each art teacher has a set of screens.
Also homesote board makes great art screen material, art frames and
bulletin boards. It accepts standard staples well and the work puls off
Art strips mounted in the school hallways make in school exhibits an
easy possibility. Light weight staple guns are a great investment for
mounting artwork on wood strips, and also are great to have for
stretching student canvases. Both Arrow and Swingline make great
lightweight models.
For areas fo unframed, standard sized artwork, for permanent exhibition-
Velcro strips are great. I have used these at the very top of my
blackboard too, because I am so short I never write up that high. It
makes a great area to show student examples or art prints.
