I started participating in ART House Co-op projects by doing the Sketchbook project 2011. You register, they send you a sketchbook, you fill it up however you like & send it back. Art House had done a number of 'Sketchbook projects' before the 2011 one, but I believe that one was the largest: 28,839 artists from 94 countries were sent blank sketchbooks and just under 10,000 books were returned completed, wow! My sketchbook has been on tour around the country last year with the other completed books and now is cataloged in the Art House Co-op's Library in Brooklyn, NY. You can view the pages in my 2011 Sketchbook HERE.
i also joined the Sketchbook 2012 project and finished in January of this year - sent it off to them -that project will begin a world wide tour April 14, 2012. If a tour stop is nearby (dates on the link below) you could go and view the Sketchbooks in person! Next up for me is the Limited Edition Sketchbook project, called as such because only 5,000 artists could register. I need to have that completed and postmarked by April 30, so you will see me posting on that soon! More on the Sketchbook Projects here on their site. The big news is Art House Co-op will be announcing the new . . . SKETCHBOOK PROJECT 2013 on April 18, 2012 ~ sign up for a reminder at the link above!
Can you tell I enjoy the ART House Co-op's philosophy and projects a little bit??
Why yes, i do! So much so I just had to give them a shout-out : )
