I have 6 foot and 8 foot tables and have them set up in a U shape around 3
sides of the room so that they do not get too conversational. I do not have
students facing each other at these tables. All sit along the perimeter.I
have 2 smaller tables inside the U for 4 students. Everyone has a clear view
of my demo table. I like this also for still life set ups which I can do
inside the U tables.
