Best Price on these compact sketch pads
Comments about Strathmore 300 Series Sketch Pads:
Art students must have practice, and a sketchbook is the thing. Prices on sketchbooks can be ridiculously high, even for this compact 3.5 x 5. But Blick's on-line had that lowest price than in-store or on-line retailers. My students use these for weekly sketchbook assignments, such as a 1-2 page focus on tonal variations or crosshatching or contour drawing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I Had To See What All The Hype Was About
from Syracuse, NY
I take a graphic design class, and we're required to use a sketchpad. As a student, it's easier for me to order online than to go out and buy something.I asked my boyfriend what he recommended and he immediately said "Strathmore." I've seen these yellow sketchbooks vastly used, however, I've never tried them. I was afraid that the quality was jack up the price, but they were on sale! I'm very pleased with the quality, however, with the permanent markets I need for class, the color bleed through (but not onto the next page).If you decide to buy Strathmore, seek out a certain thickness for what writing/drawing utensils you'll be using. As a beginner, I bought for the brand and not necessarily the thickness.
Very good for the price
from Camarillo, CA
I have used these pads in my life drawing class and other drawing classes and they have been great. I have used the 400 series before, but for quick sketches, but this pad makes a lot more sense. They also last quite a while.

Exactly as expected
from Oakland, NJ
First time I'm trying these pads and I'm very satisfied. As good or better then any I've used before.
Good Value, nice paper
from Northern Virginia
This product is nice, great for older kids,as well as adults, will not hold up to water application well. I purchased this to go with a set of Aquarelle Pencils, the ones that are water soluble, but the paper will not hold up to water, so use this book for skeching and drawing, do not plan on water application.
I would definately buy here again!
[...]just what I needed for my son's art class
