SEE THE WORLD ONE DRAWING AT A TIME This is a group for all sketchers out there who love to draw the cities where they live and visit, from the window of their homes, from a cafe, at a park, standing by a street corner... always on location, not from photos or memory. The group was created in November of 2007 by Gabi Campanario and set the foundation for the Urban Sketchers blog (Nov. 2008) and a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the art of on-location drawing (Dec. 2009.) On our website, you can learn more about Urban Sketchers, our mission and activities. Before sharing your drawings in the pool, make sure they meet these basic criteria and they are done in the spirit of the Urban Sketchers Manifesto. • You did the drawing on location, not from photos or memory. • Submissions must provide location (City, State, Country) of sketch and show context or setting for objects, people, and places. • No sketches from figure drawing sessions, posed models or still lifes. • 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. We aim to maintain the group's pool focused on location drawings from every corner of the world. We reserve the right to remove any drawings that don't fit our mission. We also encourage members to write descriptions and stories associated with each sketch.
