Our friends over at the Sketchbook Project recently launched their latest global art endeavor, the Pen Pal Painting Exchange. Based on criteria you provide, the project pairs you with a like-minded artist and you’re both provided with a pre-gessoed 4″ x 4″ canvas, a custom canvas bag, and loose guidelines. After finishing the artwork, the paintings are then swapped in the mail. The first theme, “flight,” proved wildly successful, and the next theme, “classic,” is up for registration through September 1st.
Colossal teamed up with the Sketchbook Project for their 2014 Tour which has upcoming stops in Oakland, San Francisco, and Portland. If you want to participate in the 2015 tour, you can signup here for a sketchbook.
