2020 Sketchbook Initiative



Monthly #TAEAsketchbook Prompts


Let's get creative all over Texas! Use these monthly prompts as a springboard for creating in your own sketchbooks, and perhaps use them to inspire your students as well. Share your creations on social media using #taeasketchbook.

Keep Creating!
