RE: [teacherartexchange] clean up

I just have them do the cups and put the brushes in a bucket (dry or not
depending on the medium), if I don't the brushes are ruined, also I have
been known to assign two students to brush duty, I only have a sink, no
counter, big talbes and not much space, having any class all trying to
clean ups is so impractical.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] clean up

Does anyone have a good clean up plan? My biggest issue is with 6th and
7th grade and the state they leave my sink and paint brushes in. My
classroom sink is right outside my classroom, so it is hard to monitor
both what is happening outside at the sink and in the room. It never
fails, someone (no one will own up to it) leaves a pile of unclean
pallettes and ruined paintbrushes in the sink. I have tried limiting the
sink to two at a time, but then we get a long line of people waiting and
clean up takes forever and there is still a mess. Any thing that has
worked for others?
