We did a survey in Nevada and came up with some reasonable requests, among
which were: white or natural colored walls that won't clash with things
you put up. Huge amounts of storage--with bulletin board cork on the
doors so you can hang lot of work. At least 2 sinks--4 preferred and
one of them should be a deep, laundry-type sink. (Make sure they drain
into the sink) The traps under the sinks should have easy clean-outs
since
they always clog up with small brushes and God knows what. Some kind of
natural light source, the ability to darken the room for slides, etc. and
having some track lights or spotlights in the center to light up
displays and subject matter. Large tables for student work areas, that
are moveable
for rearranging for different projects. A drying rack. A tile or cement
floor for easy cleanup--A floor drain would be nice. A lockable storage
room that is separate would be great--and if you teach ceramics--an area
for drying that is secure. Make sure your kiln is vented--also if you
do air-brush etc. get a hooded spray area that vents outside. I
personally
would kill for a door outside. I would have kids running in and out with
stuff constantly--I would expand to the great outdoors for half my stuff-
and it's really cold here! It would be wonderful to have separate areas
for clean dry work and wet messy stuff and really clean areas complete
with computers etc. for the cadillac of art rooms which most of us will
never get. Sid
