Preschool Art Center Storage  

art center storage

Here is my new art center storage!  I love the organization of it all!  

My rolling cart has 10 drawers – so I did double up some supplies.  I also love that the drawers pull all the way out so students can take a drawer of supplies to the table if needed!  You can check out what is in each drawer in the list below…

So…I guess the real question is – does it stay organized?  

Well, at clean up time I find my students really trying to put the items in the correct drawer.  Since the drawers are clearly labeled and there is enough room for all supplies it makes it easy (and maybe kind of fun) to put things away.  Although, you can see in the photo above – the drawer with the small pieces to glue is a bit of a mess.  I’ve just had to let it go… sequins don’t like to stay put.  I mean…they are in the drawer at least!

So, I would say this drawer full of art supplies has been a big benefit to our art center.  Not only has organization and clean up of supplies been more successful, but I love how my students have the whole table to create!
