What kind of floor do you have; cement or carpet? I taught in a metal
shop/art room with cement floors and stools. The screeching of tool
legs on the floor was awful. Someone did suggest that putting old
tennis balls on the leg ends would help. Stools also have a funny way
of tipping over very easily depending on the student and the

Subject: [teacherartexchange] art room furniture
I have been given the opportunity to order new tables for my art room.
I teach K-2nd grade kids, and my room is quite small--a regular
classroom that was converted to an art room years ago. I have been
functioning with six 36" x 72" tables--that have functioned quite well
in the space--I use 5 tables for students and use the sixth table to set
out supplies for the various projects. My tables are pretty high for the
kdgn. kids, so I am thinking of adjustable height tables, but am going
to stay with the same dimensions. I am considering asking for stools to
replace the ancient chairs that I now have. What do others of you have
in your rooms? Do you prefer stools to chairs?
