10 Inspiring Art Spaces for Kids

kids art

My toddler is getting to the age of real arts and crafts (finally!), so we’re looking into a more organized space for all of his crayons and paints and construction paper. Whether you have an entire play room or just a small corner, you can create an imaginative, accessible, keep-‘em-busy-for-hours art space for your kids.

Here are 10 inspiring spaces for your kids to create art:


  • DIY Art Center 1 of 10

    See step-by-step directions below on how to make your own affordable (and compact!) paper art station.
  • Affordable Art Space 2 of 10
    Affordable Art Space
    You can see exactly how affordable this IKEA-made art center is -- designed to be toddler friendly but baby proofed.
  • Armoire Make-Over 3 of 10
    Armoire Make-Over
    Turn an old armoire into an art space! The drawers and shelves are perfect for storing supplies and toys, and the inside doors can display their creations. The best part? When your kids aren't creating and crafting, just close the doors for a mess-free look.
  • Creativity Center 4 of 10
    Creativity Center
    We showed you this room when we were talking about unique ways to display kids' art, but let's focus on the actual art station. A low-lying table with hanging crayon-holding cups make the art space accessible and convenient, and the hanging wire makes it easy to string up wet masterpieces.
  • Store Bought 5 of 10

    This entire workstation is available at The Container Store ($627.27), which can grow from art time to homework time.
  • Crafty Solution 6 of 10
    Crafty Solution
    Hot glue super-strong magnets to soup cans and then stick them onto a steel cookie sheet, hanging it with a plate hanger. Then you can use the soup cans to store all types of art supplies.
  • Smart Storage 7 of 10
    Smart Storage
    Turn any kid's table into an art station with this simple storage craft made from a child's apron.
  • Instant Artist 8 of 10
    Instant Artist
    If you already have a desk like this, just add some butcher paper for an instant art center.
  • Art Nook 9 of 10

    Turn an ordinary kid's closet into an art table.
