Description

From the creators of the Sketchbook Project, a companion sketchbook that features guided prompts from the original project to inspire anyone who wants to connect to this unique community.

The Sketchbook Project is a constantly evolving library of artists’ sketchbooks from around the globe. The library annually tours its completed sketchbooks, exhibiting in galleries across 15 countries.  To enroll, participants sign up on The Sketchbook Project website and receive a blank sketchbook for a nominal fee. Once completed, artists mail in their finished sketchbooks to the Art House Library in Brooklyn, where each one is given a unique barcode, digitized for online viewing, and displayed in the Library’s permanent collection.
 
The Sketchbook Journal is a guided sketchbook that offers the project’s annual prompts and themes (as well as never before published prompts) posted on their website that participants of the project use for inspiration. The companion sketchbook also includes specific references to the digitized library for further sketching and doodling ideas.  Meant as a precursor to the actual Sketchbook Project, this journal helps to get the creative juices flowing and references an impressive global community of artists.
