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.

Can use this any where!
from Kingman, AZ
It's large enough for many paper sizes, but small enough so you can take it any where to use. It holds the paper still at the top and the bottom so I don't have to worry about it slipping.
Love my Board, it's just the right size...
from Santa Clarita California
I purchased the 15X16 board a while ago damaged, but didn't realize that the broken clip would be such an issue for me. When Blicks learned of my broken board, they immediately contacted me and wanted to send me a new board. Now mind you, I was NOT asking for a new board because I knew the clip was bent when I purchased the item in store. However, Laurie Love, the manager of the Blick's store insisted on sending me a new board. I was really impressed. Then, the board came. Ms. Love not only sent me a new board, but included a Blick's canvas bag, a sample of colored and graphite pencils and a package of Canson paper samples. It was like a mini Christmas and it made my day! Thank you Laurie for being such an amazing manager and I will get to your store this summer to say thank you in person! Good on you, Blicks, your customer service is TOP Tier!

just the right size
By saint crazylady
It works as I expected it to. Haven't tried others so I can't say if it is the best.
I would buy again
from New Mexico
I am unable to draw at a table due to severe arthritis and scoliosis. I purchased this board so that I can draw while propped up on pillows in bed. This board has given me the freedom to draw with the board in my lap leaning against a bent leg. The clips are excellent in holding my sketch pad and are easy to use. I don't understand the comments saying the clips are difficult to use - my experience has been different. The board is light enough to tote around, yet sturdy and durable.

Good board for classroom use.
from Wilmington, NC
I have purchased about 20 of these boards in the last year. In the last order I noticed that the boards are thinner than I expected and we have been getting some crunching on the corners when they are dropped. I'm not sure if the specs have changed or I just finally noticed it. I would prefer a little heavier board. The clip seems to be quite nice. We don't use the rubber bands that come with it.
from Alamo, TX.
I needed a smaller board to use that is portable or when I don't want to use my large board.
Would buy again, but I don't think I will need to.
from Andover, MA
I needed a drawing board for dry media and found this was the best deal. The handle on the side is more useful than I thought it would be. It is light but sturdy, and has a smooth surface. The elastic band is useful for holding papers, but also serves to hold drawing tools in place.
from West Chester
The board is much weaker, less stiff, than other makes. Cheap, but only cheap
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use this board for my figure drawing classes. It holds my 18 x 24 newsprint pad well. The things I enjoy most about this board are its dark color, smooth finish, and flat clips. The flat profile clips make it easy to slide in and out of my portfolio/carrying case without catching on the sides or zipper. I also noted that the clips are very strong, and easy to open from a sitting position (I sit on a wooden "horse/donkey" for figure drawing). All in all, it's an attractive board that does its job well.
