The McKinney Sketchbook Project

How it Works

  • We meet weekly on Thursdays from 5-6 p.m. at John and Judy Gay Library.  
  • You'll get your own personal sketchbook and art supplies.
  • We'll add your completed sketchbook to our catalog, display it on the shelf in the teen area, and digitize it so that you can show off your work from our Virtual Sketchbook Collection!
  • Space and sketchbooks are limited. Please be sure to register in advance.
