Dear Jennifer the "lurker",
You can certainly involve your students in decorating their art
room. Try painting big images of windows (where there are none) and the
students can paint in the things they wouuld like to see outside the
window. If you can find a source of mirrors, they will make the room seem
bigger and be practical for self portrait studies, too. Use left over
paints (light and bright colors) to paint any brown cardboard storage boxes
that are in view. My students love to paint boxes. Eliminating the
warehouse look is a boost to the teacher's morale, too. Make the art room
as child friendly and inviting as you can. It doesn't have to cost
$$$$$$$$$$.I've seen lots of great suggestions on this topic from our list
members since I joined last October.

I thought you may have

|stools, or anything else?
