Art Room Furniture
Today, most people think of paper-filing as archaic and no longer necessary. Technological devices, scanning, and photography have efficiently replaced our paper piles and storage devices. However, if you were to speak to an artist, architect, elementary teacher, or Children’s Director, the need becomes glaringly obvious. Whether you are a self-employed artist, run an architecture firm, or work in a church, consider ending the clutter. Savor your plans and projects with the flat file paper storage sold by Worthington Direct.
Art easels are excellent tools for inspiring creativity in children. They’re the perfect addition to many settings, including church nurseries, preschool and elementary school classrooms, art rooms, and even home playrooms. To get the most out of your easel, try thinking outside of the box. Here are some fun ways you can put your art easel to good use:
Experiment with different surfaces. Instead of using traditional paper, consider experimenting with some unique surfaces. Kids will enjoy painting on the bumpy texture of bubble wrap. Or, allow your children to create their masterpieces with a silver background provided by tin foil.
Art room organization can become an overwhelming task. However, prioritizing space and creating accessibility to supplies will help the art room become organized and more functional for the little artists who can’t wait to get their hands messy.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when furnishing an art room is finding the appropriate storage to hold all the different sizes and types of materials used in art. The Tip-Me-Not Portfolio Storage unit by Wood Designs creates perfect storage for art rooms. The top half of the unit keeps art work organized in divided compartments, while the bottom half stores art supplies in shelves or tote trays. This dual purpose storage unit is mounted on wheels, making it easy for teachers to move around as needed. The mobility and versatility of this storage unit helps with space, allowing more room for tables and chairs.
