Canvas Boards

Does anyone have suggestions for hanging paintings on canvas board?  Is it better to use a frame?  If so, what are the best ones/most economical?  Are there any interesting ways to hang without a frame?   My 7th graders just finished a project on 11x14 canvas board, but before I go out and purchase frames I'd love new ideas on how to display.  Thanks!See More

personal learning chairs

Hi I need advice on wobble chairs and stools. I would like to get them for my art classroom instead of the stool I have. I have read they are better for students. Has anybody used them, and what is the result with art materials. Can students still do good work as they rock?  See More
