Studio Easels


Most of our studio easels are shipped directly from the factory where they are produced. Dick Blick arranges shipment by the most economical carrier, and you pay the actual shipping charges. In most cases, this shipping charge can be determined automatically and added to your invoice in the shopping cart when you provide your address and postal code.

Blick's own studio easels ship directly from Dick Blick's central warehouse. Shipping charges are based on the amount of the total order, and they can help you qualify for free shipping.

A-Frame/Lyre Easels

A-Frame Easels, also known as Lyre Easels, rely on their triangular silhouette to provide a sturdy foundation for your painting. The single rear leg allows for placement in corners and tight spaces. In most models the rear leg can be flattened for easy storage. Most designs do not allow forward tilt of the top of the painting surface, and canvas size can be more limited than some H-Frame models.

 
Convertible and Hybrid Easels

Convertible and Hybrid Easels serve the artist who is not satisfied to work in one medium. Most are designed to accommodate the needs of oil/acrylic painters while converting to the needs of the watercolorist or pastel painter. Most closely related to the H-Frame family, these easels provide a maximum of flexibility.

 

Giant Easels are designed for the artist working on a large scale. These easels, which support canvases taller than 8 ft (244 cm), are enlarged versions of the standard easel designs, some with extra accommodations such as a double mast, or a winch to hoist heavy surfaces.

 
H-Frame Easels - Medium Duty for Light/Medium Canvases
H-Frame Easels - Heavy Duty for Large Canvases

H-Frame Easels derive a solid stance from their rectangular silhouette and their substantial rectangular bases. Several models accept giant canvases, most afford a forward tilt, and some have crank adjustments and paint tray features that offer even more convenience to the painter. These substantial workhorses command a presence in the studio. Many models can be collapsed for storage and transport, but they are heavier and clumsier in their collapsed state than A-Frame and Single-Mast easels.

 
Single-Mast Easels

Single-Mast Easels are the simplest of easel forms. Their more affordable architecture can be appreciated for its elegance but cannot be counted on to provide the same sturdiness or flexibility of the other traditional forms. Single-Mast easels are often seen in cramped apartments or school studios where their advantages are clear. They take up less space, they collapse and store with great ease, and they are generally more affordable.

 
Steel Tube Classroom/Studio Easels

Steel Tube Easels are strong and durable, ideal for the universities, high schools, and community art centers. However, many artists prefer a traditional wooden easel for the home studio, because they are more adjustable, or a lightweight aluminum easel, because they are more portable.

 
Wall Mounted Easels

Wall Mounted Easels are easels that require you to mount them to a wall. They are not free standing like traditional easels. Wall mounted easels are great for individuals with limited floor space.
