Artist easels are used for stabilizing canvas or other materials while
painting or drawing. They can be A-frame, H-frame, double-sided,
tabletop, or studio size. Artist easels can be made of wood or
metal, although wood is usually the more popular choice. Most
artist easels feature legs for stability and a ledge on which to rest
canvas. Studio easels may be made from aluminum and have wheels for
portability. Artist easels may have one or more trays in which to
store supplies such as paints or brushes. Some easels have a
spindle at the top for hanging a roll of paper and an adjustable clamp for
mounting paper or canvas. Many children's easels have an A-frame
with both a chalkboard and whiteboard. French easels can fold
completely into a box and provide storage space for canvas and
supplies. Artist easels come in a variety of sizes and are
typically adjustable in height and foldable for easy storage. Many
can be adjusted for use on a table top. Professional-grade easels
may have adjustable angles for greater flexibility. These eBay
listings exemplify the many types of easels that are available to artists.
