Newsprint is a thin paper that is inexpensive and easy to use for simple practice drawing with dry media such as pencil, charcoal, pastels and simple marker line drawings. The smooth surface makes it easy for the media to glide across.

Students and artists can easily plan and execute preliminary drawings on newsprint paper. 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.
