An art table is good when it facilitates the creativity of the child. That means that it has a good work surface and a few other things to make art time fun.

This simple Art Table by Imagine Childhood hits all the elements. The work surface is white marker board. There is a built-in paper roll holder as well as 2 paper cutters. A small tray holds paints and markers. The construction is sturdy and no nonsense. The Art Table is made from sustainably harvested northern hardwood maple with a non-toxic finish. Like what you see? You can purchase one from Imagine Childhood for $75.50. The stool sells separately for $32.
