Contribute to our animal sketchbooks. We will have available 2 sketchbooks to borrow. Check one out for 1 week and add your animal art. See what art others have done. Then return so your work can be shared and someone else can add to the book. Any mediums, other than glitter, can be used that won't damage the book or make them unusable. Draw, paint, or make a collage. Check one out along with a book on drawing. This project is modeled on one in Brooklyn, NY. You can view art books in their collection here: www.sketchbookproject.com
