Creating Space for Art & Supplies

Some artists have the joy of owning a studio. Well.....I have the "joy" portion, and improvise when it comes to the studio. (smile) When living in a small home, you work out ways to create space. Here is the storage room that I use to keep my art supplies. The shelves are a huge help in utilizing space. I create art throughout our home. No room is safe! *laughs* If I need the work surface of a floor, or the bathroom counters and sink (photo-emulsions, etc), its getting used. Art desks and supplies are set up in different rooms. This month, I am working on screen printing, so I'll be creating art in the kitchen. When doing artwork such as mosaics, I have a drafting table and two library bookcases in a screened in patio area for storing more supplies. Sometimes, I enjoy creating art at the park. For that, I stuff supplies in my rolling tote, and off I go!!!
No matter the size of your living quarters or lack of studio space.....if there is a will for both creativity and an art-play area, there is a way.
