Well, beginning week 4 of school- and its going great!! (actually only
the third week with students!) Anyway, I solved the problem of storing
lg. repro. by taking two sheets of tag board , taping them together on
three sides ( I cut 3 inches off the long side of one of the pieces so
I can write the name of the artist in big letters on the larger piece
and it looks like a giant folder) I store them by the artist
(alphabetically) and also some by categories like sculpture, fabric art,
etc... I stand these up on the floor in about a 12 inch space between a
cabinet and the wall in my storage room. It makes it easy to pull a
file and use the prints. I'm very lucky to be starting year two in a
fabulous new facility with a dream art room ( I used to teach in a dark
little portable) I have two stacks of large flat drawers on the wall
with the counters and sinks but I still use my folders for the
reproductions because they are so easy to handle and use. Big drawers
make it hard to find what you want. Hope this helps-its always clearer
to the person who is typing! Also thanks to the one who asked for kdg
ideas and to all who shared such great ones -I've been gleaning!!!!!
Jeryl in S.C. where we are hoping the hurricane heads east!!! we
need rain but not that way........
