This may have to be my first purchase to organize all those crayons and markers and scissors, oh my.
I would love a different color bucket for everything: pencils, scraps, crafts, fabric, pipe cleaners. Although with my daughter's extensive art supplies, I'd end up with enough buckets to fill the whole room.
This was a purchase, along with the accompanying roll of paper, I made before my daughter could hold a crayon. It's worth every penny — and beyond. She and I use this not only for large-scale drawing, but also for covering surfaces for other art projects.
On my to-do list is finding a cute and clever way to display my prolific artist's work — but not permanently, given said prolific nature. I'm thinking these curtain wires with clips will do the trick.
This is meant for utensils, but it could also be used to divide art supplies. Bonus: It's colorful and inexpensive.
Leave it to MoMA to make sure the arts are covered for kids. This sketch and activity book guides kids in recreating works of the masters. I'd have loved this myself as a kid. Heck, I'd still love it.
This book is on my to-buy list. The writer's blog, Make and Takes, is filled with kid-friendly activities, and this book would give my daughter and me reason to make great use of an art center.
I have this easel. It is by far the absolute best purchase, given how inexpensive it is.
