What is a drawing pad?

A drawing pad is a collection of sheets of paper bound together, designed for various artistic purposes. They make the perfect format for doodles or creating your next frame-worthy masterpiece. 

You’ll find a wide range of art pads for drawing, with something to suit every artist. To break it down, the main types of pads include sketch pads for quick doodles, drawing pads for charcoal and pencils, watercolour pads for watercolour paints, and even mixed medium pads, suitable for various materials. It’s always best to research what is the best style of pad based on the media you are using. We have a huge selection of Pads & Blocks available to start exploring. 

What type of drawing pad is best for beginners?

As a beginner, consider a versatile sketch pad. This will help you decide on what you do and don’t like as an artist. Sketch pads are great for practising different techniques and are often more affordable, allowing you to explore without breaking the bank.

Is there a difference between sketch pads for drawing and painting? 

Yes there is! The important difference is in the characteristics of the paper. The choice of texture depends on the artist's preference and the drawing medium used. Using heavy materials such as paint or inks on a sketching pad can cause bleeding through the pages. 

What sizes are available for drawing pads?

We have a variety of sizes to suit different projects! If you are looking for an art pad for sketching, you can find a selection of sizes and styles to best suit your needs. Whether you're a seasoned artist or a budding creative spirit, you can find the perfect pad for your next project. 

Benefits of a drawing pad

Owning a drawing pad can have countless benefits for an artist, including: 

  • A dedicated and organised space for your art

  • Easy to store format for your artworks 

  • Perfect for capturing spontaneous ideas and concepts

  • A time capsule of your artworks to monitor your progress

  • And perfect portability to take your artwork everywhere you go!
