Message from the founders
Thank you so much for checking out Sketchpad Gallery! While working in the games and movie industry up here in the Bay Area, we have been extremely lucky to work with and meet many talented artists and creators, and we’re very privileged to be able to share some of their work with you.
Having grown up here, we really want to contribute to the San Francisco art community through showcasing local artists, workshops, and speaker series. We want to give artists and art lovers a place to share their work, their tools and techniques, and to find and share the things that inspire them! Thanks for coming by...
