Field or Sketching Easels are smaller, lightweight Easels that can be used outdoors, at Art Classes or in the home studio. The free-standing versions are usually of a steady tripod construction whilst others come as 'boxes on legs' that provide the addition of storage for materials. Many come with straps or bags for easy transportation.
Table Easels that sit on table tops or desks for working on smaller artwork or for displaying small paintings, drawings and printed materials.
Studio easels for large work where stability and size is required.
