A Crowd-funded sketchbook museum and community space

  • Catalog

    Connect your book to an account online and give us the 411. Tag your sketchbook with searchable catalog details, write your artist bio, title your book, pick your theme and more!

  • Library

    Every book submitted to The Sketchbook Project joins the permanent collection at Brooklyn Art Library, our storefront exhibition space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY.

  • Participate

    Everyone starts from the same blank book. Place your order, and we’ll mail you your blank book and all the other details you’ll need to know.

  • Create

    By getting a sketchbook, you are joining the movement, adding your voice and becoming part of something huge. Draw, write, collage, cut, print, photograph - It starts with an idea.

  • Mail

    All the details of what to do when you’re done are included with your order. Once you complete your book, mail it back to Brooklyn Art Library, where we’ll catalog your book and get it ready to join the collection.
