The Brooklyn Art Library creates this project where artist can pay $25 to receive a Moleskin sketchbook to fill up and send back by January 15, 2011. Then the Brooklyn Art Library barcodes and if you want digitizes the sketchbooks so that the artist may see how many people look through their particular book!
The Sketchbook Project has different themes that your sketchbook can be based off of, either you may pick your theme or you can have them select it for you (kindof like a surprise/challenge!).
Then, not only are the books on display in Brooklyn, but they also travel across the United States! Check out their website for more information! http://www.arthousecoop.com/sketchbookproject/
Many of The Art League Staff are participating, and we hope some of you will too!
