I agree with the poster who recommended a paper cutter if you do not have one. But also a printer or plotter would be fabulous. If you don't currently do photography -- you could. That is a bummer about the kiln. What about a large drying rack for artwork? That is something I cannot live without.
ENJOY! How exciting!
- What about a book shelf filled with art books? I have a hand-me-down display shelf with lots of art, animal reference and beautiful picture books- students love to take them to the rug (another item) and read them and use them when drawing. Many parents that might not be able to afford a big ticket item would gladly spring for a book or two for your shelf. Whatever you choose- reach for the sky! You never know unless you ask! Ali B. k-4

The idea is that a person could have something purchased for the art room and have a plaque affixed to the item stating that they donated that item.

I do not have very many ideas for a large ticket item that could be used by several grade levels beyond a loom. What I really want is a kiln but our district insurance only allows kilns at the high school level.

What about display cases? Our school had nothing and I just received a grant and now I get to buy a 3-D display case and a museum style wall hanging system to put in the hallway!

How about a heavy duty paper cutter? I just bought one with my Artsonia money and it is awesome!Re: The foundation at our school is having a fundraiser and have asked me what items I would like for the art room.
