High Quality Sketchbooks, Art Books and Art Therapy Materials

At Unbelievably Affordable Prices

The Sketch for Schools' Educational Sketchbook Program® was designed by an art instructor who was in search of a quality sketch text book and visual journal at a budget sensitive price. Through a consortium of art instructors and artists the sketchbook program emerged with a full line of quality classroom sketch and art books made from the finest art paper, rugged construction, thick custom-made spiral binding.

As a direct result of volume, all of our sketchbooks are priced well below wholesale prices. The more schools, museums and any art lover who participates, the better assurance of keeping the prices below wholesale. And, free ground shipping is included in all of the prices!

Our primary source of advertising is 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.

Tough and Durable Enough for Any Student

Reinforced, Tear-Proof Covers — All of our sketchbooks and art books are constructed with reinforced front covers so they will not rip off in backpacks, desks, or lockers. The front cover is the same quality material used in many of today's scrapbook products.

Rigid Back Covers — The back cover of each book is made from an thicker coated stock – perfect for field sketching and journaling.

Custom Made Stout Spiral Binding — All of the binding material is made of plastic pvc spiral material. The pvc material is made from 35% post consumer product. This material has no memory and will not bend or deform like wire material commonly used in sketchbook binding. This material is very friendly for K-12 grades.
