Call for Submissions: The 2014 Sketchbook Project

October 30, 2013

Christopher Jobson



Time is quickly running out to sign up for the 2014 Sketchbook Project, the world’s only crowd-sourced sketchbook library that goes on mobile tours around the world. Anyone can participate from any background, any location, or artistic skill level, from an artist seeking motivation or an art teacher using the Sketchbook Project as a learning assignment. It’s a great way to participate in a collaborative art project, and you even get emailed when somebody checks out your book on tour or in the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Library.

This year Colossal will be along for the ride as part of the Central Tour with stops in Brooklyn, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Madison. But there are several other ways to participate so check it out. You have until midnight on November 1st, 2013 to sign up, and you have until January 15, 2014 to finish your sketchbook and submit it for the tour. The Sketchbook Project is run by the Art-House Co-op in Brooklyn, and if you’re ever in New York stop by the Brooklyn Library and checkout a few of the 27,747 Sketchbooks from 135 countries (yours truly has looked through about 4,000 of them and I highly recommend it).
