Setting up for art
We are attempting to create an art room at our school (no art teacher, but a space where teachers could take their students for art lessons).

Other than the obvious - paint, brushes, paper, etc. What do we need? I'm hoping to write a DonorsChoose project in the fall to help get stuff, any help with what to get would be appreciated.

thanks :)

A drying rack!

I'd also get some posters of famous art to decorate the room, if you get enough money.

Will add those to the list

What a great idea!

Have teachers and families donate old magazines and newspapers to use for collaging.
Smocks (you can use large old t-shirts) are useful.
