Learning Studio Tour

Welcome to our creative learning space!

The summer of 2016 we moved into our current house and I decided to do away with the formal dining room to create a space where the family could make together. This is the first room you see when you walk into our house.

I hope you enjoy getting a tour of our space. It is well loved and used daily.

We are using a media hutch with barn doors from World Market, to keep books and pretty materials at hand and also to conceal messy looking materials. After taking these photos, I realized I have a lot of stuff. (yikes!)

Below are photos of the shelves and a peek behind the barn doors.

These are the shelves on the left.

Glitter, language arts books and the most used learning books

Below are photos of the open shelves on the right.  On the top are several of the books I used while I was in the MEd program at ASU, some of my favorite books from my time at HGSE and books I often use for inspiration for our art and learning activities.

The lower shelves hold art books & notebooks for the kids.

Inside the barn doors are mostly our craft supplies.  There’s an embarrassing amount of supplies.  My oldest is 14-years-old so I’ve been accumulating material for a long time.

Next, is the computer side.  I purposely set up the computer in this room for a couple reasons.  The kids were often researching topics or looking at how-to videos in another room then going back and forth between the two rooms.  I also wanted to have the computer in a visible area to keep an eye on the kids and the content of the videos they watch.  This has worked out very well!

Next to the computer, I have a cart with our most used office supplies and materials.   The glass cabinet on the right is used for art and craft materials as well as our family scrapbooks.

Next to the computer we have a rolling paper cabinet from IKEA.  This has been the best way to store paper and other materials.  I am considering organizing the acrylic paints in here as well because they need a home.

Stamps and specialty papers

The table we use is my childhood dining table and chairs.  It is covered with decorator vinyl fabric to protect the top.  I try to keep the table clear but on most days every inch is covered by numerous projects.

I hope you enjoyed getting a peek into our learning space.
