The KBAC is a federally recognized nonprofit organization, founded by a collective of local artists and writers who have joined together to create a community workshop and educational center to further book design and its related arts: fine printmaking, papermaking, bookbinding, and creative writing. Our workshops, exhibitions, publications, and programs are funded in part by grants from the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation, the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Brooks allows sketching at all times, but not that many people take advantage of it. I would love to see the galleries, specially where Masterpieces will be installed filled with people sketching.
I have organized an opening weekend celebration for the exhibition Oct.3 and 4. I would like you to encourage your students to come to the Brooks to sketch Saturday, Oct.3 and Sunday, Oct.4. anytime between 11 am - 2 pm. We will provide stools. Very important: ONLY #2 Lead pencil is allowed, and a maximum size pad of 12 x 18. Other materials such as pastels, charcoals, paint, etc will not be allowed.
Since I don't know how big the response will be, please tell your students that if they are coming on that weekend, that they should sign up online at www.brooksmuseum.org/sketching. This will be very helpful to us so we know how many people to expect during this time period and we can be ready with stools.
Thank you and I hope you truly encourage your students to participate. Students who sign up online and are coming to sketch during that weekend and those times will receive FREE ADMISSION.
