Urban Sketchers is a global community of artists (professional and amateur) who practice on-location drawing. It’s a lovely way to get out and sketch/draw/paint in the company of others.
The Urban Sketchers (USk) mission is to raise the artistic, storytelling and educational value of on-location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people around the world who draw on location where they live and travel.
Meet-ups are always free and bring people together in a convivial atmosphere to discover new places and share drawing tips and ideas. It’s also a good way to learn and improve your French!
The USk Manifesto is
We draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what we see from direct observation.
Our drawings tell the story of our surroundings, the places we live and where we travel.
Our drawings are a record of time and place.
We are truthful to the scenes we witness.
We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles.
We support each other and draw together.
We share our drawings online.
We show the world, one drawing at a time.
