Are you an artist, out to make your mark on the world but struggling to find the place to do it? Then we’ve got exactly what you’re looking for.
Sketchbook STUDIO is looking for artists to use our free studio space for two weeks during our live event. We encourage you to create the most inventive, unrestricted pieces your imagination will allow. Feel free to experiment with a multitude of artistic mediums, including illustration, painting, sculpture and film. Sketchbook Studio is your blank canvas and we want your creativity to run wild all over it. Working over the course of two weeks, you will have the opportunity to be interviewed by members of the Sketchbook team whilst the general public can come and observe you at work.
Your final piece will be exhibited at the Sketchbook Studio launch party, where it can be auctioned off for charity if you choose. The launch party will be the ideal end to Sketchbook Studio, with 300 guests, live music, cupcakes and drinks marking the end of our two-week reign.
Being part of Sketchbook Studio is the ideal chance to introduce your talent to the world and to build up a valuable list of contacts which could benefit you further in your career.
