You've already gotten some good advice; I just want to encourage you to
save any posters or smaller images of art. Postcards are a good size for
bulletin boards, as well. You will find these images very handy as years
I also like having files of magazine photos of all sorts of things the
students may need to draw. I sort them by subject (horses, dogs,
landscapes, water, sky, faces, etc.). I don't like them to use other
people's drawings or artwork as references. It's easy to keep these neat
in a portable file box.
