Sketchbook Project

The County Arts Sketchbook Project is an initiative to safely celebrate our 35th anniversary during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our vision is to:

• Inspire creativity within our artistic community in an accessible, low-pressure way;
• Safely and meaningfully connect artists with one another and with our broader community; and
• Promote local artists by building and promoting a digital collection of their artwork.

Join the Sketchbook Party!

All Artist Members in good standing are welcome to participate! Artists will have until August 3rd to fill and return their sketchbook to us. The books will then be scanned, uploaded to the digital collection, and shared with the community through social media. Physical sketchbooks will remain in our permanent collection; once the Covid-19 pandemic is over, we hope to share them with the public. This project was inspired by a similar initiative at the Brooklyn Art Library.

To get started, please fill out the Intake Form and purchase a sketchbook at our Online Shop.

Purchased sketchbooks can be picked up at our Picton office. We are not able to mail sketchbooks. Please read our full Terms of Service prior to purchasing a sketchbook. Click here to download the participant Information Sheet.

County Arts Sketchbook Collection – coming Fall 2021!

Once digitized, participants’ sketchbooks will appear below, listed alphabetically by the artist’s last name. If you are interested in learning more about a particular artist, flip to the inside front cover of the sketchbook and click on the artist’s name – it will take you directly to their member profile.
