Agree with many others that the paneled walls should be the same white as the walls below. An old trick for drawing the eye upward (to highlight your spectacular fixture) is to paint the ceiling a very, very light shade of the palest blue or palest teal. I would also paint the handrail white to match and replace existing mounting hardware with a nickel finish hardware. If you are hanging art, think about natural birch frames to balance the overall black-and-whiteness. And, most importantly, anything that goes in the space should make you smile because you love it, not because it's matchy-matchy.

I will echo that this is a wonderful class and gift that you're giving to your students! After 7 years of inner-city teaching, I'm painfully aware of what happens to children (and adults) with limited resources and limited education or motivation. Cup O Noodles and beef jerky is not a proper meal!
