Welcome to dickblick
It's no secret that many manufacturers are cutting corners and creating French-style easels that make a mockery of the original Jullian French easel. Don't let the bad drive out the good! Dick Blick asked Jullian, the designer of the original, to make us a French style easel with all the original workmanship and details, plus a few modern innovations that just make sense, like a nylon carrying strap.
This classically designed easel combines a sketchbox, easel, and canvas carrier in one for the on location, plein air painter. Blick's French Easel, designed by Jullian, is adjustable to whatever height and angle suits your painting style. It is beautifully handcrafted in naturally dried, oiled, and polished elmwood.
The easel includes a weather-resistant metal-lined box that holds a wood palette (included). It's also ideal for storing and transporting paints, brushes, and other accessories (not included). Use it as a canvas carrier too. Finished paintings can be placed on the outside of the folded easel and carried. Pre-assembled.
Carrying Bag — The easel now includes a FREE red canvas carrying bag with a nylon handle and shoulder strap for easy portability.

BLICK FRENCH EASEL BY JULIAN
Comments about Blick French Easel by Jullian:
I teach painting and the Blick French Easel has been one I consistently recommend to my students and friends. It is very sturdy and very reasonably priced for students who may not be willing to invest too much money in the beginning.I have purchased many portable easels over the years of varying prices and designs, and for the price this easel is still the best!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sturdy so far
By Charles the Coffeemaster
from Rock Hill, SC
I got this for my girlfriend for her birthday. I figured I did okay at best, but she was blown away that I was so thoughtful. We set it up and all of the hardware seems good quality. Some leg slippage occurred, but it was easily rectified by just tightening the hardware some more. The dividers in the drawer are very difficult to rearrange and seem like they were made for as little money as possible, but I can't say I'm surprised when I went for the $100 option instead of the $300 option. Also, once you have the dividers set how you want, they seem to stay put and you probably won't be rearranging them all the time. The inclusion of an easel was nice, too, since she's been using cardboard for this for as long as I've known her. Overall, she's happy, so I'm happy. Quick shipping, good product, no complaints.
Love the Blick French Easel by Jullian
from Atlanta, GA
Purchased the Blick French Easel by Jullian for my granddaughter's birthday. Delivery was fast and the product was exactly as described. It is well made, easy to put together and she loved the carrying bag. I would highly recommend this easel and especially at the great price Blick offered (50% off)!
Need more instructions.

Finally got it together. Looks like something that I can use.
Love the look, easy storage, hard to move parts
from Lexington, KY
I am absolutely in love with this easel! I have two little boys who love to destroy everything, and so being able to store my easel out of sight is a must. This easel is easy to store, and easy to move. I love how it looks and the fact that it has a drawer attached is amazing. Only problem is that it is a beast to set up and take down, but that is any easel, so really not much of a problem.
from New haven
This easel is sturdy and perfect for my Plein air painting. I did not to spend a lot of money but for the price it's a great value.
Fantastic easel for your outdoor adventures

I have a large "indoor use" easel but wanted to have something portable to use on my deck. This fit my needs perfectly! It's extremely sturdy without being too heavy and easily adjusts to any height. Quality craftsmanship will give me many years of use!
