Humans have made art for basically forever for good reason. Scientists say that engaging the creative mind yields a slew of benefits, including lowering stress and activating the reward pathways in the brain. To get that mood lift, it makes sense to store art supplies in an organized, easy to access way. Enter: rolling storage carts!

Heavy-duty casters translate to smooth gliding from a storage area to a work space. The wheels should lock in place when still to keep those art supplies within reach. Some art carts forgo dedicated drawers for a simple basket design, which is ideal for young artists who prefer to see all their art supplies at once.
