Sketchbook Project 2012

My good friend an gifted artist, Ellen Miffitt, encouraged me to enter the Sketchbook Project 2012 sponsored by the
Art House Co-op.

First you choose a theme for your sketchbook and Art House Co-op will send you a sketchbook. I picked "Along the Line" and not sure why, but it will unfold (pun intended!). Your sketchbook must be postmarked by January 31st 2012 in order to be on the 2012 Tour. The tour begins in April and thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the world.

You can find out the which cities are participating in the 2012 tour and a recap of the five month 2011 tour at the website.

After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view. Many of the books will be available by digital image too.
