I'm going to show you today how to organize and set up and tame your own art studio. Moving on from art cabinets and organizational skills are easels. Easels are the next piece of art furniture we're going to cover for your studio. Easels are used for a number of tasks, most commonly for making paintings. That's the thing that they're most known for. And from the looks of it, that's what I've been using this guy most of the time for as well. Easels are incredibly flexible in terms of being able to organize them, to basically match your body shape and also your preferences in terms of how you have--like to make your art. They can be used to fit many different sizes of canvass. Here I have a sixteen by twenty inch canvass that I can then adjust the top down, then I retighten the bolt. Now your canvass is in there nice and snug. You can also do it where if you want to be lower to the ground, there's other adjustments you can make to where then your canvass is going to be lower if you want. And of course, I mean, you can have a much bigger painting. Imagine a painting from here to here. You can also adjust it where the tilt of your easel is different. It will go forwards, backwards. And a lot easels will also collapse which will allow them, if you have a decent sized vehicle, to easily fit this in the back of your car seat and then take it to other locations to paint so that you're also being able to get out of your really, really cool art studio.
