Great sketchbook for any school art class
By Art Teacher
from Charleston, SC
Comments about Strathmore 300 Series Drawing Pads:
These are excellent value and solid quality. The paper is acid free and not a bright white. The perforation gives the option of tearing out. The spiral on top allows it to slide easily in and out of a book bag. My students for nineteen years have used this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent pad for students and artists
Gift for a student.
from Blackfoot, Idaho
These are sturdy sketch books that turn my students into artists. There is something about holding a real sketch book in your lap that makes you feel like a real artist. We are having a great time using these at school.

Wonderful for colored pencil and more
from Pacific Coast
I use this mostly for colored and graphite pencil, but also for some Pan Pastel backgrounds for my drawings. It works great for all of them.The paper is smooth with just enough tooth for colored pencil layers, one side being slightly smoother than the other, depending on what you prefer. Both colored and graphite pencils go down smoothly and blend easily. The paper holds up well to erasing if done with a bit of care. It also holds up to burnishing of colored pencil extremely well. It accepts Pan Pastels nicely, and they can be lifted with a kneaded eraser somewhat. It's not intended for pastel use, but for a little dry mixed media of pastel, it's very nice.Mostly this is a great paper for pencils, and the price is outstanding for the quality. It is not listed as artist quality, but the truth is it gives professional artist looking results. And it's made in USA by an environmentally aware company.(Attached artwork made on the slightly rougher side of the paper. Birds, branches, individual leaves in colored pencil, background in pan pastel.)

I am an art teacher and students can be hard on their projects. Strathmore paper is consistent in holding up to their abuse and their art work lasts of a long time. #sweepstakes
