Jerry has several of these classic, aluminum studio easels in his Oklahoma Studio. The Stanrite #500 is a sturdy aluminum easel which holds up to a 48" high canvas and any reasonable width. Fold flat and weighs only 7½ lbs. Has a 21" wide utility tray to hold gear right up front and incorporates a swing-out palette holder. With rubber tipped legs to protect floor. Sets up in minutes without any tools.
Adjust it so that you can sit or stand while painting as illustrated in the additional photos of some of Jerry's students.
