Great Tricks to Keep Your Art Studio Organized

Looking for ways to keep your art studio organized? Here’s some great websites I found.

Forcreativejuice-com.cdn.ampproject.org has tons of great organization solutions for your craft room like peg boards and using plc pipe to hold markers and craft paint. 

Another great site for art room organization solutions is Huffingtonpost.ca . I love the lampshade solution dangling small sketches with paperclips. I’m going to have to try that one. Or what about using gutters for narrow shelving? So smart!

Diys.com has a great post on 30 DIY Storage Ideas for Your Art and Craft Supplies

We all know how expensive art supplies can be. Here are some sites to help you take care of your art supplies to extend the life.

According to household-tips.thefuntimesguide.com leftover house paint in extreme temperatures changes the consistency. Tightly seal containers and store upside down. Be sure to store in a cool, dry place.

If it is time to throw out your paint, turn house paint into a solid to dispose of it. Air dry completely or use cat litter to absorb all the moisture.

Artists, follow museovault.com ‘s advice and be sure to clean paint residue from cap so you can open the lid instead of it crusting over. I’ve thrown out many tubes of paint that I could not open because of this which can be so frustrating.

Who knew that pencils could be damaged in extreme temperature changes?

Be sure to put brushes away in good, clean condition. I wash mine out with hand soap to deep clean paint out of the bristles

Here’s another great post from crafty.com for caring for your brushes to extend their life.
