Urban Sketchers Austin is a local community that meets to sketch and share and that promotes the Urban Sketchers mission and manifesto.
1. We draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what we see from direct observation. 2. Our drawings tell the story of our surroundings, the places we live and where we travel. 3. Our drawings are a record of time and place. 4. We are truthful to the scenes we witness. 5. We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles. 6. We support each other and draw together. 7. We share our drawings online. 8. We show the world, one drawing at a time.
Let's hope for some really nice weather and go out to Blanco State Park to sketch. Sklar Hong will be hosting this one. Blanco is about 1 to 1.5 hours drive from Austin. The park is small but very pretty. The town of Blanco is fun to walk around in. Lots to see.
