art room storage 
As art teachers, we are familiar with the ‘art’ of saving anything and everything because, “we might be able to use it later!” For example, I recently used mini-cupcake containers left over from a school celebration to keep acrylic paint fresh for weeks! In today’s video, I’ll share how you can transform recyclables into easy storage solutions for a variety of art supplies. The containers’ sizes work perfectly, plus they’re free! If you’d like, you can “pretty” yours up with labels like I did. It feels good to be resourceful!
