About the event

If you are curious about Urban Sketching, but feel hesitant to commit to a class, are anxious about drawing in public, or have any other excuse for not giving it a try, this workshop is for you. Urban sketchers use simple portable tools and the power of direct observation to document their world, describe their experiences, capture city scenes, architecture, characters, and events in their sketchbooks. Sitting on the cross-section of art, architecture, and journalism urban sketching movement is taking the world by storm by attracting audiences from all continents, skill levels, and walks of life on the bases of a simple premise: “We show our world one drawing at a time.”

We designed this introductory workshop to answer your questions about the movement that started 10 years ago and has converted thousands of people across cultures and continents into happy sketchers. This workshop is the stepping stone into the world of quick drawing based on direct observation, combining words and illustrations to create vivid, funny and memorable snapshots of everyday life. We will talk about the USK mission, basic techniques, tools, and the fundamentals for sketching on location. We invite more experienced sketchers to join us to help inspire, lead, and share their passion.

There will be raffle prizes, fun exercises, and good sketchy times for all. This event is free and open to the public.

Registration is required. Space is limited.
