Easels are multi-function tools for home, school, or office. In addition to holding or displaying artwork, an easel can support whiteboard and flip charts for presentations, promote specials outside a business, or serve as signage for event directions. Their usefulness ranges from professional messaging to just keeping the kids busy at home with a box of chalk or erasable markers. If you need an easel to display any kind of work or words, here are a few things to think about before buying.

While classic art easels were traditionally made of wood, a collapsible metal easel is more durable and versatile. But take a close look at the ease of use. While large wooden easels are typically set up once in a permanent location, such as a studio, metal versions usually are portable, which might entail additional assembly steps.

Not all easels are meant to hold artwork. A one-piece stand with a built-in whiteboard is perfect for conference settings or the classroom. This type of easel is also great for homeschooling or for remote teaching when a little old-school blackboard instruction is in order.

A multipurpose easel should have an adjustable height. From studio work to painting en plein air (painting outdoors), telescoping legs allow standing work as well as supporting a canvas on the ground or other work surface. A locking easel rest is handy for securing work outdoors in breezy conditions.
