Please join us on Facebook.


We draw on location capturing what we see from direct observation. We meet at different locations with whatever medium you choose. Every artist has a different style, which we celebrate and encourage. Every sketch tells a story of the time and place.

Beginners to advanced - All are welcome! The point is to enjoy sketching and sharing with others. However, please change your RSVP if you are unable to attend.


Urban sketching is a world-wide community of artists that share the same interest ( This is the manifesto we follow:

• 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.


Bring your own materials.  Optional: sunscreen, a sun hat, a seat, drinking water.

How the sessions are run: We meet at a particular location at the specified time and set about to draw in that area. You can move around depending on what you like to sketch. We catch up again usually after 2 hours to share our work with others. 

Please find a safe location to draw and look after yourself and your possessions - we will not be responsible for any mishap.
