now is time to get ready for next year, or if there is time this
year. See if wood shop can help. If not make it a summer project.
Have at least 20 teams or individual make benches for
drawing/painting. You know the kind that look like Amish single
beds! has a front leg which is about 30"(rough est.) and a back leg
which is about 24" the seat is about 3' and then there is a strip of
wood about 6-8" from the front. It will hold pads to draw or flip it
over and it will make a pretty good painting easel surface. Anyway I
always had them at my schools and in college. You could ask a local
college for donations or help in making it. It would be a neat
project to have everyone make their own and then personalize it by
painting or carving.
