Great student sketchbook
from San Jose, CA
This is my favorite sketchbook for my students because the pages can take any media, so it is perfect for students to experiment. It's a good size for carrying back and forth from home to school, and the hard covers keep the book from being crushed by all the things my students cram into their backpacks. They're a little pricey for my students, so I buy a few whenever they're on sale and let students purchase them from me at the sale price.

I use the watercolor books for art journaling. The paper is very thick and accepts gesso well. Excellent covers too!

from Skagit county, Washington
I am an art therapist and purchase the small journals for my cancer patients. Each person who attends the art & healing group is given a journal which they decorate and can take home between classes. The quality of the paper holds up well for watercolor, acrylic, gesso and I introduce them to different art techniques and encourage them to collect quotes and collage items. Cancer patients feel their life is out of control at the dictates of medical issues, and this is a place where they have total control and forget their troubles while creating.
