Lately, I’ve seen some truly inspiring art room doors posted by art teachers on social media. I think this creativity needs celebrating, so here are some amazing examples.
It doesn’t just have to be the door, but the area around the door, that can create an amazing arty, welcome to your students. Art teacher Dena has created the paint tube inspired display below.
Below art teacher Mr Hansen has made a colourful welcome to the entrance of his art room. The door was painted first and then later the wall was decorated with geometric shapes using tape. I love the colour choices. He told me:
“I created this during the school day on my preps and after school one term so kids could see an artist working and get a little behind the scenes of a work shaping up.”
Art Teacher Mr Wafi created the Piet Mondrian-inspired door below. I love the way the bold blocks of colour stand out against the white walls. He tells me that it was all created with collage – simply brightly coloured and black paper. Sometimes the simplest things are the most effective.
Art teacher Olivia MacDonald who teaches in Random Lake, WI, has painted her door with chalk paint. Throughout the year, she updates her door with messages and themes. It’s great that she can switch it up like this. However, I’d never want to rub these out!
This bold art room door below was created by art teacher Stephanie Corin Schmid who recently posted the image on my FB group ‘Art Teachers Making Art’. I asked Stephanie how she went about it and she said:
“I used painters tape for the lines and then planned the colors around Roy G. Biv. It’s my focus this year!”
Art teacher Jane Oplinger is the creator of the inviting door below. She has drawn all the images herself using white marker and acrylic. What a work of art!
The striking art room door below was inherited by elementary art teacher Cindy Romero Ahonen when she moved from an itinerant position into a permanent position. It’s been lovingly painted!
Art teacher Sherry Thomas got her (K-5) students to create small artworks inspired by Takashi Murakami to decorate her art room door. What a great idea to make your art room door a collaborative project.
