One way to encourage your kids to get creative: set them up with an art station worthy of the next Koons or Kahlo. Here are 11 cool easels and desks that will inspire your little ones to unleash their imaginations, get hands-on with color and take a master class in early art appreciation.

Sit and Stand

Ah, the life of a young artist. Sometimes you want to sit and think, and sometimes you need freedom of movement to express yourself. Either way, this nicely priced easel/desk has you covered. There's storage shelving above the desk space and with minimal assembly required, your little Picasso will be up and painting in no time.  

Available at Step2, $54.99.
