Urban Sketchers Folkestone

May 14, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

I’m hoping to find people who are interested in forming an Urban Sketching group for Folkestone. Starting in 2007 in Seattle, Urban Sketchers (USk; www.urbansketchers.org) is an all-volunteer, non-profit dedicated to fostering a global community of artists who practice on-location drawing. Its mission is to raise the artistic, storytelling and educational value of on-location drawing, promote its practice and connect people around the world who draw on location where they live and travel.

 

The idea is very simple: to meet at least once a month as a group, sketch for an hour or so, compare the results and publish photos of the work on a Facebook page or dedicated website. To qualify as an official Urban Sketching chapter (there are at least seven currently around the UK and scores more globally) we would have to have:

  • an online platform where members can share sketches, interact with each other and find information about the chapter’s events
  • a minimum of three administrators committed to the USk mission and manifesto. Being an administrator would requires involve planning sketching events, sharing work online, offering feedback to fellow sketchers, and communicating with USk and other regional chapter leaders.
