The 8th International Urban Sketchers Symposium will be held in Chicago, Illinois. July 26-29, 2017. Sketchers of all levels, experience, and backgrounds are welcome.
What is the Symposium?
The International Urban Sketching Symposium is an annual educational event organized by Urban Sketchers (USk), a nonprofit dedicated to fostering the practice of on-location observational sketching. The goal of the Symposium is to celebrate and practice the art of on-location sketching in the host city. The event offers valuable field-sketching instruction and opportunities for participants to network and socialize. Following our spirit of “sharing the world, one drawing at a time,” we aim to bring the Symposium to new cities and countries every year. Portland, Lisbon, Santo Domingo, Barcelona, Paraty, Singapore and Manchester have hosted previous editions of the Symposium.
The Workshops Pass gives you access to the full educational event, including the Welcome Reception, all of the faculty-led workshops, all lectures, and one demonstration, as well as the Closing Party and social activities.
This pass keeps you busy learning sketching techniques from top artists while visiting with friends old and new.
The Basic Pass includes access to the Welcome Reception, organized sketchwalks, lectures, and one demonstration, as well as the Closing Party and social activities.
With the Basic Pass, you will have a leisurely experience. You’ll meet everyone for the morning gatherings and then explore Chicago between meeting up with others for sketchwalks twice a day. You’ll be able to meet all the other sketchers during the receptions, lectures, demo, and social activities.
