Re: Setting up a new art room?

I thought I was getting a new room with the passing of our bond - instead we
got one of the largest gymansiums in the state - definately larger than any
other 1A gym! But, some of the things I asked for with the renovations (and
* student storage space - both for flat work as well as 3-D
* sinks with clay traps
* NO carpet! I actually had to fight this one!
* lots of cabinets for art supplies (locking)
* Book shelves
 I share one classroom (primary) with the music teacher (fantastic
arrangement for both of us). One room (intermediate) I did share with the
Title 1 teacher, now it is my own, and the MS/HS room is mine alone. I wish
I had better display areas in all 3 rooms - now I hot glue or sticky tack
everything to the walls. All 3 rooms are adequate for my needs. There are
some things I would improve upon, but I'm happy with what I have.
