Get the Zine!

It’s filled with the things we love — ideas, interviews, suggestions, tips, news about what’s going on in the klassroom, and fun essays from our teachers. New issues emailed to you every couple of weeks.

Our fakulty do more than teach you to draw.

They become your mentors and friends. Sketchbook Skool teachers are top artists, illustrators, designers, authors, and all-round creative folks. Each week, you’ll visit a different teacher’s studio to share stories, experience, tools, work, and sketchbooks — and learn new styles and techniques. You’ll come away with loads of knowledge, inspiration for your own art, and new friends. Our teachers are active members of our community and you’ll be able to interact with them even after the kourse is over.
