Whether you are a beginning artist or an old pro, now is the time to organize your artwork and art supplies.  It is a wonderful feeling to be able to lay your hands on any media or paper that you need - at a moment's notice.  If things are disheveled and disorganized you may lose the inspiration before you even begin!


Over the next few weeks we will be looking into various ways to store your art supplies.  Some may work for you and others not, but take a look and see what you can do to get things in tip-top shape!

Purchase a 3-ring binder at your favorite store for this project.  Be sure it has a transparent, plastic front that allows you to slip in a picture on the front.

While you are at the store purchasing your binder, check out the Page Protectors.  These are clear, plastic pages that allow you to slip your art into them without damaging your page with hole punches.    You may also move your artwork around at will.

Add a favorite piece of artwork to the front.  You can download this picture to paint or color if you wish.

Store your artwork, projects and art assignments in this great binder.

Organizing Your Art Supplies

All of the pages that you download from this site will be the perfect size to store in a 3-ring binder.  Pick up one now and start the habit of keeping your art organized and easy to access.  A binder can also act as an Art Journal keeping a record of your progress. You will love looking back at what you have done earlier.  Remember to date all of your work and note what media you used and how.
