Winsor & Newton’s Thames Easel is a good example. Measure 3 inches from the top edge of three 8-foot long studs, and draw a line across each stud. Set up an instructional area (if you are doing the teaching). Display Easel - merely for 'displaying' your finished works. So, you can keep using this easel as your kids grow up. We first started by measuring and cutting all our wood to size for our outdoor easel. It works well for outdoor painting as well. Get easels online >>>
