Perfect for dry materials
from East Lansing, MI
I purchased this for a drawing 1 class so I could have a good source of heavier paper for our homework assignments. It works well, the tooth holds on great to charcoal (as long as you make sure you use the right side) and the stiffness of the paper makes it less likely to tear while I carry it around. I ordered one of the larger sizes, so I cannot really complain about issues with traveling, but I will definitely need to buy another soon! The price is reasonable, the quality is great, and Blick shipped it faster than expected and 100% in tact.
Good Value Nice paper
I recommend this to all my beginning students at the college level. Great sketch paper.
Great for charcoal. Easy tear.
from Big Rapids
Teaching charcoal techniques and I ended up liking the drawing paper for the kids better than the specifically charcoal paper. The students preferred the smooth surface...has just enough texture to hold the charcoal with no ridges. Also, it tears out great...no worries of corner rips. The only thing I would have liked better for the project we were doing was if it was a bright white.
Great Drawing Pads
from Boulder, CO
Quality paper at a decent price. I'm hooked on Strathmore's products.
Great drawing paper that takes a beating
from Richmond, VA
Sturdy all-purpose drawing paper. Has a really nice tooth for most drawing media, and will take a lot of erasing and other work without damage.
It works for what we need
Excellent product at a competitive price.
By NC Torstenson
from Ames, IA
Excellent quality paper for final projects, art pieces, sketches, and more. The price is very competitive for the market. If it weren't for the shipping cost, it would have been 5 stars.
Really nice paper
By Nodda Picasso
from NE Ohio
I'm no Picasso, but I've found Strathmore papers to be highly consistent in their manufacturing and very nice to work with. As well, Strathmore products are commonly found and quite competitively prices (sometimes even Dirt Cheap, which is when you buy 5 rather than 1, yes? yes.).
from Plainfield, IL
I have used this product for my beginners drawing class and now my life drawing class. It always hold up well, does its job, and can withstand multiple erasures very well. It doesnt hold up ink very well. (Seeps through) but overall I love this. Its a pretty good price and a reliable product.
