Start your art with one of our sketchbooks
Whether you are buying a sketch pad for your first art lesson or are a seasoned artist who needs to restock on essential items, choosing a suitable sketchpad is always an important decision. We've tried to make it as easy as possible to find what you need, curating a wide range of sketchbooks from well-known brands, as well as products from our own WHSmith range.
We stock A4 and A3 sketchbooks for those large scale drawings and designs, as well as smaller sizes which are ideal for a quick scribbles or to take with you for those moments during the day when inspiration grabs you.
Specialist pads for acrylics and watercolours
As well as our collection of generic sketchbooks, we also have niche items which are intended for use with specific types of paint. In addition to paper that is suitable for watercolours, we offer specialist paper which is better suited to art with acrylic paints. Our sketchbooks are suitable for all ages and all levels of artistic ability. Ideal for school children and students, they're also a good investment for anyone who's considering taking up painting or drawing and wants to make sure they've got the right materials for the job.
