Your Guide To Kid's Easels
If you are not that creative yourself, the idea of a kid's easel might sound a little foreign to you. There is no need to worry though, because you can count on the comprehensive beginner's guide at Spotlight, which will tell you everything you need to know about this amazing product.
What Are The Main Features Of A Good Easel For Kids?
Just like adult art products, children's art products must meet a number of criteria. So, what should you be looking for when you choose an easel for your child's bedroom or play area?
Storage: Since art time can get a little messy, it can be useful to choose an easel that has some storage in the actual design. Of course, if you have a craft room with dedicated storage room, this might not be a necessity. Nevertheless, storage options on the easel itself can save lots of time where clean-up is concerned.
Assembly: Most easels will require some form of assembly, even though they are designed for kids. The majority of easels are fairly straightforward to assemble, even for those who have little experience doing things like that.
If you feel insecure where assembly is concerned, it helps to look at the overall design of the easel and match it to your assembly skill level. Does the easel have lots of small parts? Does the design look rather simple, or a little more intricate? Remember, solid pieces with a simple design will always be easier to set up.
Versatility: If you have more than one child who is quite creative, you may want to look at one of the double-sided easels. Double sided easels are great for the play area, as two children can use the same easel at the same time.
The only thing to consider with double-sided options is height. If there is a considerable age gap between both kids, then they will undoubtedly have a height difference. In these cases, double-sided options with a height that cannot be adjusted might not be the best option.
Height: As we mentioned in the previous section, height is important for your child to work comfortably. While this can be avoided with most tabletop versions, it becomes a little more complicated with a freestanding easel.
If you have your heart set on a freestanding easel, it is always best to choose one with an adjustable height. After all, some children grow quickly, and you do not want them to outgrow their favourite creative accessory too soon.
Which Material Is Best For A Painting Easel?
You will find options in different materials these days, yet wood remains the most popular option. There are several reasons why most easels are made in wood, and this has a lot to do with the art itself.
Wood is quite neutral in its look, which means it does not distract from the actual artwork. On top of that, wood is also durable, which is exactly what you need for a painting easel. These rules do not only apply for children's easels though, as adult painter's easels are made from similar materials for exactly the same reasons.
Even though wood is the most popular material that does not mean you cannot find them in other materials. So, do not be afraid to have a look around if you are looking for something more decorative.
