Event description

Description

The 9th International Urban Sketchers Symposium will be held in Porto, Portugal, July 18-21, 2018. 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, Manchester and Chicago have hosted previous editions of the Symposium.


Symposium Passes

There are three types of passes: Workshop Pass, Basic Pass and Sketch Pass.

All pass types includes access to the opening & closing receptions, demos, Skit Sketch presentations and Sketchwalks.

However, only the Workshop Pass & the Basic Pass will give you access to the educational event. The Workshop Pass will give you full access with 4 choices of workshops. If you are looking to spend time for social sketching and some educational experience, the Basic Pass which allows access to 2 workshops, would be your choice.

With the Sketch Pass, you will have a leisurely experience. You’ll meet everyone for the morning gatherings and then explore Porto between meeting up with others for sketchwalks during the day. You’ll be able to meet all the other sketchers during the receptions, demo, and social activities.

As illustrated below, you will see the access levels according to pass types, with the corresponding fee structure.
