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.

Comments about Blick Sketch Pad Boards:
It works as I expected it to. Haven't tried others so I can't say if it is the best.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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

By Miss. O
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.

I have wanted a board a long time, they can run very pricey, then I found this one on Blick. I have the smaller size, just right for me. I draw and watercolor on mine with no issues. I made a make shift shoulder strap handers from large binder clips and an old strap to hold the board while standing. Works great!

Received as gift but I did pick it out. Love the color, nice quality, excellent price and just perfect for my tabletop easel.
Love these sketch boards
from Plymouth, NH
I needed a smaller size - something more portable than the large one I have. Lasts forever.
