When you have an art assignment to complete or if you have a student in your household that has regular art work to do there will be some accommodations you will want to make to ensure these tasks do not consume the entire house. Art can be messy to be creative, it needs lighting, and it needs ventilation, and special materials and tools depending on the media the student uses. Here are some recommendations so that the student in your household can do good quality work.
Right from the start you will want to dedicate a space in the household for the student to do art work. Without this dedicated space, the art assignments will begin to migrate throughout the home and you will gradually see the house turn into a disaster zone. Dedicate space for the student to work and then make sure they stay within the confines of the allocated space.
When an artist works they cannot be bothered with trying to stay neat. When inspiration strikes they will need to do work at the moment so that they do not lose their train of thought or forget the ideas that they had. Accept that the work is going to be messy and then when they have completed their masterpiece then request that the other mess be cleaned up.
Inspiration can strike at any hour of the day from early morning till late at night an artist will work when they feel it is best for them. Remember that they will have strange hours and be accepting of their schedule. If possible close of their space so that the light they need to work does not wake people who may be trying to sleep.
Artists see beauty in a variety of different media from large wood carvings to metal forged pieces. No matter what media your art student is working with, make sure they have the tools, power, and ventilation necessary to protect them while they work. Make safety a priority for whatever media they select.
Art students spend years perfecting their craft and developing their style under the watchful eyes of their instructors. If you follow these tips, the art student in your household will have the support they need to be successful in their studies.
