The Pratt Sketchbook Biennial

The semester's winding down, projects and papers are being finished up, and we're feeling like our creative juices have been depleted.  Perhaps now, more than any other time of the school year, it's imperative that we creative types find an outlet void of pressure, yet filled with inspiration.  The Pratt Sketchbook Biennial is exactly that.    

In October 2013, Pratt's Center for Career and Professional Development launched the 2nd Pratt Sketchbook Biennial, a project focused on community and art. But this year's theme has a twist.  From now until the end of Spring the Pratt Sketchbook will function as a sketchbook relay, where groups of artists, writers, designers, and creatives from the Pratt Community come together and collaborate to fill sketchbooks generously donated by Strathmore Artist Papers.  Participants check out sketchbooks in 2 week intervals, fill them with anything they'd like, from collage to notes to sketches, and then return the sketchbook for another participant to check out.  Participants can sign up with a predetermined team, or work in a random sketchbook that will be passed around throughout the course of the project.    

The following are examples of work students and faculty members have already contributed.

The Pratt Sketchbook Biennial will come to a close in Spring 2014.  All of the sketchbooks will then be put on exhibition at the Center for Career and Professional Development.
