Sketchbook Project 2011 for ArtHouse Coop Gallery

Mail envelope, library card, project instructions, and sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project for ArtHouse Coop.

 My Library Card


Sketchbook covered with fabric.

Taken from the ArtHouse Coop website:

Each artist is sent the same blank Moleskine sketchbook. We've only got two rules: first, the book must be used in some way - no sending us back an empty book or a completely different book! Second, the sketchbook must stay within its original dimensions (because we don't want to have to provide an extra suitcase just for your book while we're touring the country).
My thought: Hmmm, I thought, as I added the Canvas Project to my online shopping cart. This sounds interesting....
Each book will be given a barcode so we can easily catalog it into The Brooklyn Art Library system. Once we catalog it, artists will be able to track where on the tour their book is viewed and how many times someone pulled it from the shelf - we want to make sure you can stay connected with your sketchbook!
My thought: More and more interesting. They track how many times the book is viewed? They let us know where the book is in the traveling library? 
The availability of sketchbooks vary each day, so sign up quickly to reserve the one you want! You have the option to choose the kind of Moleskine and the color of the cover when you add the project to your cart over to the right.

Ok, I am getting this project, too. I have until December of this year to finish it. That is wonderful, because I have a lot of work to do!

There are two artists in Miami, Florida that are also working on this project. One has just about finished her book, and the second has just begun her sketchbook.

Click here for Nancy Martini and her post about the sketchbook. You may want to search her blog, because she was very good at posting most of the pages as they were finished.

Hi Angeline Marie, Good luck with the project! I saw this, but am reluctant to try yet. It will be fun to see what you do!
