If you want to use an easel make sure it is small and light - you will have to carry it everywhere with you. I only use an easel so students can see when I am demonstrating.


 

 

All this should fit into a backpack and be easy to carry. Anything you are not sure about, leave behind. If you work on a small easel, remember, you have to carry it.
