1. Make it inviting. The most important factor in creating a kids art space is that it must be inviting. Bold colors and a well organized space will draw the kids in and comfy chairs and a variety of materials will keep them there.
2. Keep it well stocked. After being drawn into the space, there should be a variety of activites and supplies that will keep their interest. Markers, stamps, glue, glitter, ribbon, paper, stickers, envelopes and scissors should be enough to get them started. I also like to add anything unusual that I collect from the rest of the house. Empty cereal boxes and package peanuts are garbage to adults but children welcome them like little found treasures.
3. Kid friendly surfaces. Easy to clean flooring, like linoleum and wood, make the clean up a snap. If your floors are carpeted and changing them isn't in the budget, you can add a large piece of vinyl found at home improvement stores under the table to catch the spills and drips
7. Creative displays. Every good artist needs a place to display their work. This frame was painted directly on the wall, making it the ideal place for older children to show off their work while keeping with the theme of the room.
