The TESTRITE “Professional” #700 Easel offers a range of perks that make it great for either classroom or studio work. The strength and rigidity of this easel let the artist focus on the work at hand without worrying about tipping or bumping the easel. This allows the artist to apply more pressure if desired than with other, less sturdy easels. Even though this easel is exceptionally durable, it is still flexible and can be folded completely flat for optimum storage when not in use. Canvases of up to 60" high or shorter fit the easel with an adjustable center piece for maximum flexibility. The tray is 24" wide and has palette holders and space for plenty of brushes and tools. At only 25" deep, the easel takes up minimal space while providing an excellent workstation. The total weight is 15 lbs and assembly is quick and easy.
