Q: Last year, I was lucky enough to have a private painting studio as a perk of my degree program. However, I graduated in May and have since started another program in a different field, and no longer have access to university studio space. I can't afford to rent a separate studio and currently live with my partner in a small (~435ft) apartment. Because the apartment is so small, any space designated for painting can't really be permanent, which is only practical as I won't be painting every waking second (as much as I may want to be!). Another concern is potential damage to the rental property. Does anyone have any ideas on how to create a temporary and relatively mess-proof studio space?
