The Sketchbook Project is a global, crowd-sourced art project and interactive, traveling exhibition of handmade books.
Our mission is to allow anyone to be able to participate in art and to create a collection of work that represents the current state of artists worldwide.
IT’S LIKE A TACO TRUCK BUT WITH SKETCHBOOKS
IT’S LIKE A CONCERT TOUR BUT WITH SKETCHBOOKS
IT’S LIKE A LIBRARY BUT WITH SKETCHBOOKS
IT’S LIKE A ROAD TRIP BUT WITH SKETCHBOOKS
The Digital Library is the archive and virtual extension of the Brooklyn Art Library and contains complete scanned contributions to the Sketchbook Project.
There is really a lot to see at the Sketchbook Project. You can join the tour and add to the project by getting a sketchbook and choosing a theme. There is a deadline each year. Go to this website for all the details and to sign up. There is a fee but you may be listed or shown on the project website and then added to permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library.
We invite participants from all walks of life to fill the pages of a blank sketchbook and send it back for inclusion in our ever-growing library of inspiration.
Anyone – from anywhere in the world – can be a part of the project. To participate and have us send you a sketchbook that will go on tour,
This is a really fun project!
