Welcome to dickblick
Designed for students and artists who need a firm, sturdy surface for sketching and a means to carry their sketching paper with them. Two heavy clips on the large board (only one on the small) hold a sketch pad firmly in place, and, once a sketch is completed, the oversized rubber band holds the bottom in place while it is being transported.
The board is made of 1/8" (3 mm) thick masonite and is very lightweight, with rounded corners for safety. A hand hole makes carrying easier.
Replacement Large Rubber Band
Keep your artwork flat and secure with Tote Board Rubber Bands. Each rubber band measures 10-3/4" long and 7/8" wide, ideal for securing your artwork at both ends of a drawing board.

Ditch the clipboards!
By "Hiya Mrs. Kaija"

Comments about Blick Sketch Pad Boards:
I am excited to finally have a class set of these drawing boards to use for drawing and painting classes outside, after using standard clipboards for far too long. Students appreciate the carrying handle and the gigantic rubber band for keeping artwork in place when the wind blows. I like the larger surface so that pieces of artwork aren't folded and torn. Definitely worth the budget money!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Price and service
from Vero Beach
Our school always order products from Blick. Good price for its value.
Good multiple use boards
from WESSON, MS
I teach a college beginning drawing class as well as basic design. I like the quality of these boards because the are pretty portable for the students and can be used for projects in both of these studios.

Most board on the market seem flimsy, I wanted something more sturdy. The board by Blick filled it. It can take a little more punishment then the others can (I have one of these flimsy ones), and to me that was big. the range in price is about the same, but this board is a far better deal for the buck. the band is good and taught, others are a little more loose. The edges of this board where a little to sharp, but a little sandpaper corrected this. This is the best i have seen on the market.

I've been unable to use this because the clasp to hold paper is too stiff and hard to open. I've injured my fingers trying to hold it open far enough to slip a page under the clasp.This is the only product I've had a problem with--usually I've been very happy with my Blick purchases
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Block sketch pad boards
from Northern CA
I planned on using this board on an easel to hold smaller substrates (mixed media papers, watercolor paper, raw canvas, etc...) on an easle. I chose this particular board for its generous size and strong hold clips whose placement on the board would allow me to avoid substrate overlay onto the hole provided for easy toting / transport of the board. I was disappointed in the somewhat flimsy quality of the back board. It is definitely not rigid and has a fair amount of flexibility. I have a smaller board that is much stronger and firm. For this reason I am returning the board. The clips are well placed and very strong. A definite plus to this board; and as previously mentioned , with substrates that would fill the board space, the placement of the clips would allow you to secure the paper to the board and avoid the transport hold hole.

Drawing its not too big or too small, just right to draw.
Grab a board!
My son loves his sketch board. We just went on vacation, and it was in the back seat with him so he could draw!!
Large Artist Clipboard 14X27
from Webster, TX
Made very well. No problems with this. I have been looking for one that I could use for a while and decided on this one because of the good craftsmanship usability. No problems with this for holding one sheet of art paper for a sturdy background to draw, use color pencils, etc., and the paper is held in place with a clip up top and has a band around the bottom to hold the bottom of the paper
