Design Standards for School Art Facilities.
National Art Education Association, Reston, VA.
The National Art Education Association (NAEA) began work on this general planning reference for school art facilities in 1989, basing its initial draft on a survey of over 90 different groups, including school districts and state education agencies. The final publication represents the views of a broad-based constituency. Photographs of existing facilities are used throughout the guide along with sample floor plans. Section 1, "Planning an Art Room: Introduction," sets forth standards for elementary, middle/junior, or senior high school art rooms. Section 2, "General Specifications," covers space; location; lighting; walls/floors; acoustics; sinks; security; barrier-free design; safety; and audiovisual equipment, computers, and multimedia. Section 3, "Specialized Art Rooms," includes facility requirements for photography, ceramics, kiln room, teacher office and work station, storage areas, resource library, and technology. Listed are sources, agencies, manufacturers, organizations, and state and federal offices that should be utilized for current data and information. (MLF)
