Buried in art supplies

Canvases from old class projects

Today is the day I reclaim my work space and return it to the art and design studio that it once was. It is overwhelming how much “stuff” accumulates during 3 years of design classes.

And having put so much money and effort into it, it is a shame to just throw it out.

Shelves of design related books.

For the past 4 months, since graduation, I have slowly donated it, organized it, sold some of it (eBay and Amazon!), and after grouping what was left, am now down to the point of decision and wondering what to do with the remaining piles on top of and underneath the cutting table.

Glazes, glues, spray paints and finishing sprays are bound for the garage.

As any good artist, I am afraid to throw anything away “just in case I need it one day!” But something has to give.

Fire hazard, anyone?

Now that I am not needing to print and mount everything on the inevitable black boards, I can move my computer workstation back upstairs to the office.

A drawing table was not meant to be an Adobe CS5 workstation!

I should petition that the college have a donation bin set up specifically to accept the leftovers from graduated students! I bet the incoming students would love having a stocked workroom!

What do you do with so much “stuff”?

Followup: Discovered that Bendi, ever faithful office companion and Cat-Editor, is improving his skill set in assisting my decision making process. Ok, the foam core goes. I don’t know what I would ever use if for anyway.
