Little Ones Can Learn, Explore, and Express Themselves with the Little Partners Deluxe Art Center Easel (Review)

Art, in one form or another, has always been a part of my life. Growing up with a graphic designer for a mother, I was able to dabble into many different forms of artistic expression throughout my childhood. From handprint turkeys, toothpick trees, and painting birdhouses at an early age, to animating videos and using a Wacom tablet to create artwork using Photoshop in my later years. At whichever age and stage I was at in my childhood, the ability to explore and through crafts and projects of all shapes and sizes provided an invaluable outlet to express myself.

When I was little, there were a few things that were at the top of my list of things I wish I had. The first was a horse that I could take riding out in the country and discover new things---impossible to make a reality when living smack down in the middle of San Francisco in a one-bedroom apartment. Learning to play the piano and violin were also at the top of my list. Another one was owning a large, wooden art easel to paint acrylic and oil paints onto canvas. But alas, we didn't have enough space for that, either. Not makeup, a life-size Justin Timberlake doll, or the latest Lisa Frank school supplies. Looking back, it's not hard to see why it was something that seemed more valuable to me than any number of other things that children or teenagers want. Art is enjoyed, appreciated, and even celebrated all over the world---whether in the form of dance, poetry, clothing, architecture, pottery... and yes, painting.

Little Partners is the genius company behind innovative products for children including the famous Original Learning Tower. When I heard about the new Deluxe Art Center Easel from Little Partners, I had a hunch that our 3-year-old, Little E, would not only benefit from it, but also have a lot of fun using it! This beautiful easel is currently available in three colors---Natural, Apple Green, and Espresso. The options for your young budding artists are limitless with the Deluxe Art Center Easel, offering two storage shelves, a magnetic dry erase board, a chalkboard side offering a classic black color and a reverse side offering a vibrant blue, a parchment paper holder for painting activities and more! It was certainly love at first sight for Little E, who begged me to set it up as soon as it arrived, and asked multiple times each day for weeks on end to help him paint on his new easel. Like all Little Partners products, the Deluxe Art Center Easel is intelligently designed to be practical for families---fun, functional, and easy to clean, too!

- Classic A-Frame Easel design constructed of sturdy pine wood
- Paper feeder located at the top of the easel to effortlessly thread parchment paper through
- Two wide shelves for storage
- Two wipeable storage bins for all your arts and craft supplies
- Four non-spill plastic cups and lids for paint and/or to hold various art supplies such as paintbrushes
- Large magnetic dry erase board perfect for magnet play and for drawing on with washable markers
- Two-sided chalkboard panel with a black side and a vibrant blue side
- Two paper clip grips on the side of the easel to hang freshly painted artwork for drying
- Generously sized ledge to hold art supplies in use
- Easel easily converts to a table-top easel in just minutes

The Little Partners Deluxe Art Center Easel has made a stunning addition to my son's room with it's appealing design and cheery color. The height of the easel at full size is easily reachable and enjoyable for smaller toddlers, without being too short as to be an annoyance for older children to use. The chalkboard material is much more pleasant and easy to use than traditional chalkboard material, and I've been pleased to discover that the color of the easel holds up even after being constantly wiped down after fun toddler art sessions. This nifty little art easel has become a source of fun for our whole family, as we supervise and participate with our son in using the Deluxe Art Center Easel from Little Partners, and has become as invaluable to us as the skills it is teaching my son are sure to be also.
