I love this post (and photo) from Playful Learning on their studio (and this one about the same studio on Ohdeedoh). These, as well as Lori's posts at Camp Creek Press, make me want to reconsider how our studio is set up. We haven't made any big changes in the past year except that it's gotten progressively messier and much more cluttered. It's time to do a major clean and to think about re-organizing, especially now that Maia is older. I'd like to make all the art supplies more accessible so that she can go back there and start working on her own whenever she wants. Some materials are accessible now, but many are not, including the paints which are in gallon-sized jugs too heavy for her to handle. I'm going to read more about the Reggio approach as I think about re-organizing.
I'll keep you posted.
