You most certainly cannot have all of your art supplies in a thousand different places, like all over your house. It's best to keep your supplies in one place, perferably in your room. Here's a list of the best ways to store all of your art supplies.
-DESK- A desk is probably the best thing to use to keep all of your supplies nice and tidy. You can keep your sketchbooks and notepads stacked and your pencils and markers in a bin of some sort.
-BOOKSHELF- A bookshelf is another great storage idea. You can keep everything nicely filed and neat and there's plenty of space for everything!
Here's my bookshelf. This is where I keep all of my art supplies.
TOP SHELF: Warriors series, Vera Bradley pencil case with my four Copic Markers, erasers, and travel pencils, Paris/New York box with junk, a bowl of Crayola crayons, red notebook with a story I'm writing, Shel Silverstein poetry books (not shown in the photo: hand-crafted bowl with push-pins and paperclips).
MIDDLE SHELF: Plastic lid with pastels, X-acto knife, and Prismacolor charcoal pencils that belong in their case (under plastic lid), plastic bin with colored pencils, tracing paper, and notebook.
BOTTOM SHELF: Locker filer, oil color paint set, keychain supplies (under paint), big sketchbook/paper
-STERILITE DRAWERS- Another great storage unit. You can keep all of your drawing pencils and markers and such in these drawers to keep them from being all over the place (I need one too, actually, because having my colored pencils in a plastic bin is quite unorganized and annoying).
I hope this helped and gave you an idea as to what to use when storing your art supplies.
Thanks for reading and remember: stay spontaneous! ~Kathryn
