The Sketchbook Project


Order a sketchbook, fill it up, and send it back to us to be a part of the world’s largest collection of artist sketchbooks! Every participant is sent the same 5x7'' blank custom sketchbook. Each book will be given a unique six-digit barcode so we can easily catalog it into Brooklyn Art Library's system.

Once we catalog it, you’ll be able to track where your book travels and how often it is viewed - we want to make sure you can stay connected with your sketchbook!

Anyone - from anywhere in the world - can be a part of the project.


  • Contribute to a time capsule library, where your work will be preserved indefinitely.

  • Become a part of a global movement of creatives.

  • Stretch your imagination in terms of what you thought a sketchbook could be used for.

  • Continue to engage with, track and promote your work no matter where you live.

  • Watch your work travel to popups, exhibitions and installations across North America.
