Budget Sensitive with Uncompromised Quality
The SketchforSchools’ Educational Sketchbook Program® was designed by art education professional and bindery professionals to build a quality sketchbook textbook and visual journal at budget sensitive prices. Through a consortium of art professionals, the program emerged with a full line of quality classroom sketch and art books made from the finest art paper, rugged construction, thick custom-made binding from recycled material that does not have memory like traditional wire binding.
Schools, businesses, museums, or home artists are all invited to be a part of the program. By participating in the program your support increases the volume. The increase in volume empowers SketchforSchools to negotiate great rates on paper, which translates to savings for our art education professionals. The more schools, museums and any art lover who participate, the better assurance of keeping the prices below wholesale. At SketchforSchools, ground shipping is always free!
Awareness of the Educational Sketchbook Program® is primarily through national and local art educator associations; however, the program is dependent on our art teacher’s referrals. Your support keeps the sketchbooks affordable! So please help us get the word out.
