It is versatile, flexible and allows me to quickly discover compositional problems and solutions.

I recommend the View Frame to art students, art instructors and professional artists."

"The View Frame by Miira Artist Tools has been a great addition in my atelier as well in my classroom. This resourceful tool is portable and easy to use. As an art instructor it has aided my I put a ridiculous amount of time into planning and composition before I even put pencil to paper or brush to canvas. While setting up a still-life or a model, the View Frame allows me to try out different croppings while also testing out thirds/diagonals, intersections, and crucial relationships. The design is paramount! Once I've finally decided on composition and I begin drawing, the View Frame then becomes a great back-up tool check my work throughout the drawing stage. I know from my learning and instructing experience at the Academy of Realist Art, Boston that the more you draw, and the more you are able to accurately check your drawing attempts to make corrections, the more technically proficient you will become as an artist."

"The Viewframe is such a great tool for art students because it was designed by an artist and teacher who is deeply familiar with the specific needs of those just learning to draw. It combines a traditional view finder - indispensable for planning your composition - with uniquely designed magnetic guides to help you draw your subject. The guides can be used in multiple ways - from gridding your frame to helping you interpret angles in linear perspective. My students use it in my figure painting workshops to understand alignment, and find the "envelope" around the pose."
