The Urban Sketchers are a worldwide movement of artists who draw on location, focusing on the creative and storytelling aspects of drawing/painting. The BJ Urban Sketchers are a local sketching group that aims to meet bi-monthly to explore different areas in and around the city of Beijing. We aim to use the visual inspiration of what's real in front of us to render through our choice of art media. We also hope to connect artists in Beijing to one another as it’s always a treat to meet others who share a love of art, and together, capture little bits of this fascinating city in our sketchbooks. This group is open to adults of all artistic levels but be aware there will be no guided instruction offered.
