Our Art class is set up into Art Studios which we open and close. A closed studio tells students do not touch. An open studio tells students you can use what’s available within the set limits. We organize studios by the media in them. Our Drawing Studio has pencils, sharpeners, markers, and pastels to draw with. There are coloring sheets and plain paper to draw on. Our Everyday Tools holds the tools we use everyday: Scissors, glue, string, hole punch, paintbrush, watercolor paint and cardboard for working on. We also have a Sculpture studio, Collage studio, Library, and Clay studio.
What about at home? How can you build an Art Studio with tools and supplies for you to create with? What about your using your backpack? Can you use this as your place to keep supplies? A backpack is a great place to keep things because there are many pockets and compartments to keep you organized. You can also keep paper scraps or small boxes for building in the bigger compartment. You can keep your backpack up high from a little brother or sister and even help them make a backpack studio too. My favorite thing about using a backpack as a studio is that it is portable. You can take it inside or set up your workspace outside. Give it a try. I would love to see how you set up your backpack art studio and what you put in in it.
