Today's Art Room Report...

Day 5 

Yeah...the front 1/2 of the room is ready.

The last day of freedom! We actually and officially have to start back Monday. It will be a week full of meetings. So much fun, I just cant wait to sit through all of that! I managed to make it to work before noon today so I did get a lot of work done. I even organized my art poster drawers! All the art is now grouped by artist, period or movement---or size, some of those suckers were huge and hung out the back of the drawer. I hardly ever use them anymore since I have a smart board but they are so pretty and I do hang them on the walls so they get to stay. 

And after 10 years of trying to figure out how to hang art posters on cinder block walls I finally got the best solutions ever. The question was posted on a art teacher Facebook page on how to do this very thing and after reading all the responses and checking off each one's failure in my head seeing as how I had done them all, I came a cross a new one!!!! 

Hot Glue Gunning clothes pins to the wall!!! OMG this has changed my out look on hanging art. I wish I could tell you who posted it but I can not find the original now. If I find her I will hug her and be forever in her debt. It's a brilliant idea.

This is me hot glue gunning the pins to the wall. I finally got to use the long extension cord that hangs down from the celling out of the big yellow box. I also see I need to lose about 1000 lbs. 

Look how awesome the art just hangs up there with the clothes pins. Now I can easily change out the work without ripping up the posters! I am a happy camper!

This is my back yard. 

This is what I get to come home to every night. My studio is just off to the left, where I will be spending my Saturday and Sunday this week! Sadly cleaning and not painting.
