Setting Up an Art Studio in a Small Space

When I had my studio in the corner of our living room, I did some creative organizing. My workspace was a 3' x 6' sheet of plywood on top of a drawing table. Underneath the table I had several rolling carts (both the open metal wire basket variety and the plastic drawer kind) that held most of my art materials. Paper was either rolled into tubes or in flat cardboard portfolios against the wall. When I worked I could pull out all of the materials, and then slide them back under the table to put them away. One perk for the neighbors was that I often taped a painting to the window in front of me to contemplate it, and it was visible from the street outside! If you want to completely hide the storage underneath, you could staple a fabric panel to the edge of the plywood board as a "skirt". -- Kay Stratman
