This durable A-frame easel is an excellent choice for college art studios and for the beginning artist. Built from electrically welded square steel tubing (1" and 1¼"), the Collegiate Easel is stable, rigid, and virtually indestructable. The mast extends to hold any painting up to 96" at the desired tilt angle, with an upperclamp to securely hold the canvas in place. The canvas tray quickly adjusts to any position, and effortlessly locks into place. Storage is easy! The Klopfenstein Collegiate Easel folds to a compact 5" (13 cm) thick.
