Art Easels & Presentation FAQs

What is an easel?

An easel is an upright frame that's used to support canvases, canvas boards or paper while an artist creates their work. They can be made from timber or metal, and are designed to keep the artwork at the correct angle so that the painter can maintain the correct perspective while working. Tabletop easels are a great option for supporting smaller canvases. While it is possible to paint or draw with canvas and paper sitting differently on the desktop, using an easel helps to prevent unwanted dust or spilled materials from ruining the artwork in progress.

How to set up an easel

Most easels, especially tabletop easels, are easy to set up. Tabletop or desktop easels typically fold down and pack flat for ease of storage and portability. To set it up for use, simply place it on your work surface and adjust to your desired angle. Lyre easels work in much the same way, but they're designed to stand on the floor of your studio.

Some easels require a little additional work to set up as they have adjustable legs to tweak the height and angle, as well as adjustable arms so you can customise the angle of the canvas support. If you don't have a dedicated art space or studio, opt for an easel that can quickly be packed away and set up for each use.

How tall should an art easel be?

The correct height for your easel should be whatever comfortably suits you and your posture. Ensure you angle the canvas arm into a suitable angle for painting (anywhere between 45 and 90 degrees), and position everything so that your canvas sits roughly at eye level. For kids who are budding artists, table top easels are a great option. Alternatively, you can look for a specially designed kids easel, or offer them a small step stool while using their easel so they don't have to stretch to reach the canvas.
