A few weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to visit The Sketchbook Project, a private art library located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I visited my friend who goes to Pratt, and she thought I would be interested because I love illustrations.
The Sketchbook Project is basically an archive of collaborative art projects. People purchase a sketchbook from the Sketchbook Project. They draw, write, cut, print, paste photographs, collage, and decorate their sketchbooks however they want to. By the designated due date, people can send their sketchbooks by mail or online. Their collections become added to the archive, and anyone who visits the Sketchbook Project can get access to these sketchbooks on site.
I was captivated by the different ideas and creativity put into these sketchbooks. One artist made a series of sketchbooks about her trips around the world, and another artist painted a series of sunsets.
If you are interested in looking at different type of illustrations and collages, definitely check out this place when you visit Williamsburg! Anyone can create sketchbooks and send them to the library.
