What we're about

Explore, draw, connect: We are drawing enthusiasts who sketch on location in urban and natural spaces. It's a fun way to connect with other sketchers and explore the South Bay area. Our intent is to maintain a positive environment for our growth as artists. Sketching locations will include urban views, historic sites, special events, cafes, museums, galleries, local parks, preserves, and gardens.

New to urban sketching? Check out the post, "Tips for New Sketchers", at https://www.meetup.com/ South-Bay-Sketchers/about. This link also contains more posts with detailed information about urban sketching. If you have questions please message the organizers .

Participation is limited to adults who are 18 years of age or older. All skill levels are welcome.

Meetups: We will meet monthly on a weekend at a specific location to draw/sketch in the South San Francisco Bay area. After drawing for about 2 hours, we will gather back at the starting point to share our work and network with other sketchers. Participants are encouraged to share what they have learned about techniques and materials.

Fees: The organizer will determine if a fee is to be collected for participation in an event. Also, some venues may require an entrance fee, or parking fee.

What to Bring: Your favorite drawing media, such as pen, pencil, markers, watercolor, watercolor or pastel pencils, oil pastels, etc. Digital tools, such as the computer tablet, are welcome. Experimentation is encouraged!
