Project Description

Art is often done on site and not in a predetermined studio space. Unfortunately transporting an easel, canvas, and a variety of art materials around is a hassle. To help out all of the artists on the go, I’ve designed a compact and easily transportable art storage kit that can double as an easel. Introducing the Paint-Mate- the traveling artist’s best friend. Paint-Mate comes equipped with a sleek wooden and epoxy resined easel face adjustable over a 90 degree tilting range and fit to sturdily hold canvases up to 10″ tall and 10″ wide. After lifting the easel face, two folding aluminum sheet wings open out from the sides of the kit to reveal three separated compartments perfect for storing pencils, markers, charcoal, paints, or brushes. Use the folding wings as a color mixing palette, shelving space, or a pencil/pen/brush/water holder so your materials are easily accessible as you work.
