Covering Large Bulletin Boards


Date: Thu Jul 17 2003 - 06:15:41 PDT

I also have a huge bulletin board in my room. Many years ago, I bought wide
grey tweed suit fabric for about $.99/yard at a fabric store and covered all
the bulletin boards in my classroom. It is still there, and still looks
great, whether there is art work up or not. If I want color, I put a colored
paper behind each piece of art, or splash colored shapes randomly over the board
before posting the art work. The board is wonderful for critiquing, as
students can pin their work to the board, and we all sit back and discuss. It is
also great for posting information about artists or things that relate to the
lesson we are doing. I enjoy having this bulletin board, even though
sometimes it seems a chore to keep up. Having it covered with fabric has saved me
lots of time.
