Urban Sketchers Miami chapter invites the Orlando Urban Sketchers to join them on one of a kind - TWO DAYS - Urban Sketchwalk event! You don't want to miss it!

With the Miami sketchers hosting the Art-Deco Weekend Sketchwalk we will be attending together the most prestige and colorful weekend event at South Beach Miami, FL: The Miami Beach 2018 Art Deco Weekend Festival!

Using Ink or pencils, watercolors or any of your drawing tools of choice, we will tell tales in our sketchbooks in the spirit of the Urban Sketchers manifesto; of people on the scene, vendors, unique cars, venues, buildings, landscape, ocean - on location, from observation. Then we will share our sketches with the world, with our USk community around the globe to provide them with a window to our life style in Florida. If you ever been to Miami South Beach you know well how big of a showcase the Ocean Drive and Collins Ave strips are!

*To the attention of the USk Orlando members and other out of town urban sketchers who will be traveling to South Florida:

  • Due to the high demand and reputation of the Art Deco Weekend festival we highly suggting that you arrange for your night accomodation at this time.
  • One of the popular room accomodation option and friendly to use is the AirBnB site https://www.airbnb.com/ Check it out to find the best arrangements for you, to book a room as individual, or maybe in an apartment as a small group you can put together with friends sketchers or family members.
  • If you find that AirBnB or other accomodation options in South Beach or Miami Beach area are not available on these dates or that it is more than your busget can take check for locations off the Island, on the main land in the Miami area near the connecting bridges.
  • For those who will be relied on public transportation our Miami friends suggestes to make your way to Bricklle Station or Government center for the light train ride or public buses to MB and back.
  • Taking Uber rides from one location to another is also a good way to go around and avoid driving your own car in the crawded South Beach streets.
  • Traveling south if not by your own car check for the Amtrak train option or the Red Coach bus transportation (RC main hub is in Orlando) You will need then to connect on locations with the local Sunrail transportation.
