This is an essential product for any parent with young children. Toddlers will love the A2 format where they can engage with their whole body, making big movements to create spontaneous drawings. Let them draw with crayons or oil pastels and enjoy their excitement when they proudly display their work. The newsprint can also cover a table when a messy project is planned.
Students and artists can easily plan and execute preliminary drawings on these very affordable pads. Artists tend to go through a lot of paper when working quickly on life studies, gesture drawing and other quick line drawing practices. This paper is a great tool to work out your sketches without using your more expensive papers. Newsprint is ideal for drawings that need to be transferred.
The soft absorbent paper is also useful for things such as masking off an area when you are painting or to keep your work area clean by covering surfaces with newsprint before inking lino or etching plates.
