Midwest Studio Birch Artist Panels
Possibilities as limitless as your imagination.

Midwest Studio’s birch artist panels are high quality and cut with precision: each panel goes through a high-level inspection process to ensure that they are studio ready. These high- density panels are perfect for all mediums and artistic levels. The cross lamination of plies helps prevent warping when introduced to moisture. The panels are not prepped or primed, and are uncradled, this allows for artistic freedom and easy framing!

Midwest Studio Birch Artist Panels are sold in the following sizes and thicknesses:

  •   • 6mm: 6”x12”, 8”x10”, 9”x12”, 12”x12”, 12”x24”
