A portable drawing surface that goes wherever you go, artist drawing boards provide a stable surface for artists, designers, architects, crafters, students, and even coloring book aficionados. From the simplest model to those with built-in straightedges, tilting mechanisms, rubberized feet, or foldaway legs, most portable drawing boards are made from wood, Masonite, MDF, plastic, or other durable materials that resist warping and other damage. Some drawing boards also have a metal edge for use with a T-square, or a melamine surface that wipes clean of graphite, colored pencil, ink, and other marks. Common features include one or two clips and one or more rubber bands to hold your work in place, and a hand-hole or carrying handle for portability. Drawing boards are a great way to take your work with you, and protect it while you’re getting there.
