Win a Free Plein Air French Easel, Courtesy of Craftsy!

Sorry, this contest has ended! Please check out PleinAirCo if you’d like more information about these easels.

As we hinted at earlier this week, today we’re partnering with Craftsy to give away not just one, but TWO fantastic bamboo French easels manufactured by PleinAirCo and valued at $200 each!

If you’re not familiar with this type of easel, here’s a photo (it’s gorgeous, isn’t it?)


Perfect for outdoor painters and plein air enthusiasts, no matter what medium you use, this popular style of easel folds up into a light-weight, easy-to-carry box. It comes completely assembled, so there’s no set-up time required other than unfolding and starting to paint. :)


There’s no purchase necessary to enter to win. . . all you need to do is sign-in here at Craftsy and you’ll automatically be included in the drawing.

If you’re not yet a member of Craftsy, I’d definitely recommend joining up and seeing what else they have to offer. Besides giveaways like this one, Craftsy also has a ton of video courses (some free, some paid—for artists of every skill level) and of course, it’s absolutely free to join and just look around.

We’ve been posting some tutorials based on Craftsy courses lately, and getting some great feedback on them, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you find a course you’re interested in while you’re there!

The deadline to enter is May 23rd, 2014, so don’t wait to get your name in!

My apologies to all our international readers, but you MUST be a resident of US or Canada to enter this drawing, and only one entry per contestant is allowed. For full rules, or to enter, click here.

Good luck, and happy painting!

Unfortunately, many times when we receive an article, we just can't use it. I'd say 95% of the articles we get aren't ever published (which is a shame, because some of them have lots. . . read more
